PTO General Meeting with Star Vista

Tuesday, February 21st, 7:00 pm

 Watch the meeting recording that occurred on 2/22/2023.

Join us on Tuesday, February 21, 2023, 7-8:30 pm, to talk about mental health - why it is important, how to support your student, and what resources are available for your family. (Presentation by Star Vista.)***

U.S. Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy, M.D., M.B.A., issued a rare public health advisory last December, calling on the nation to respond to the growing mental health crisis impacting young people that has worsened with the pandemic.

“Recent national surveys of young people have shown alarming increases in the prevalence of certain mental health challenges—in 2019, 1 in 3 high school students and half of the female students reported persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness, an overall increase of 40% from 2009,” wrote Murthy in the advisory.

Suicide rates among youth aged 10 to 24 years increased by 57% between 2007 and 2018, and there were more than 6,600 estimated deaths by suicide in 2020 in this age group.

Join us for our first PTO meeting of the school year!

9/19/2022 Monday 7pm

This is the first school year of “normalcy” for many of our students in the last two years since we all went into lock down in March 2020.  Many students may be feeling really difficult emotions right now and you may not not how to help them. 

Our special guest, Staysha Veal, from our Wellness Counseling Department, will join us to let us know what resources are available for students who are feeling anxiety, stress, or depression. 

We hope this will be an introduction to a social emotional series we’d like to host throughout the school year.
