Dear Parent or Guardian:
 
The teen years are marked by a rollercoaster ride of emotions---difficult for teens, their parents and educators. It is easy to misread depression as normal adolescent turmoil; however depression appears to be occurring at a much earlier age, and the past decade has seen teen suicide rates double.
 
In order to address this issue, The Ambridge Senior  High School is offering the SOS Signs of Suicide Prevention Program to the entire 10th grade class
 
Our goals in participating in this program are straightforward:
 

 

  • To help our students understand that depression is a treatable illness, and help them assess whether or not they may have symptoms consistent with depression
  • To explain that suicide is preventable tragedy that often occurs as a result of untreated depression
  • To provide students training in how to identify serious depression and potential suicidality in a friend.
  • To impress upon teens that they can help themselves or a friend by taking the simple step of talking to a responsible adult about their concerns

 

 
If you have questions or concerns about the program or about the screening please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Cristen McCoy, Mrs. Jill Manns or Mrs. Noel Santini @ 724 266 2833 ext 2102

FREE SEMINAR...7:00pm on January 29, 2015 at the Ambridge Area High School auditorium

 

"Teaching Students How to be Proactive in the Recruiting Process, and Setting a Gameplan for Success!"

 

“Guiding the College-Bound Athlete” will provide information and topics for every student-athlete in middle and high school and their parents to educate and prepare them for opportunities and careers after graduation.

 

Many student-athletes who aspire to play at the college level are not familiar with the ins and outs of academic requirements and eligibility as they need to be in order to pursue their goals. “Guiding the College-Bound Athlete,” is a program designed by Rick Wire, president of Dynamite Sports, a Pennsylvania-based corporation, and the father of 9-year NFL veteran Coy Wire.
