Please join us for our next PTSA Meeting on Monday, October 29 at 6:00 pm in the Auditorium. This will be followed by our next PTSA Forum, including a screening of the documentary “Angst.”

As of 2011-2012, more than 1 in 20, or 2.6 million, U.S. children aged 6-17 years had current anxiety or depression that had previously been diagnosed by a health care provider. (Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics).

Angst is a 43-minute film that explores anxiety, its causes, effects and what we can do about it.

Join us for a screening on 10/29 at SPHS. Parents, students, all are welcome! Appropriate for ages 10 & up.

Then join our special guest – Natasha Prime, MSW School Social Worker and Child Welfare Counselor – to answer your questions & talk about resources in our schools & district.

For the SPHS screening on 10/29, register HERE.

The SkillsUSA chapter at the High School is holding a used shoe drive to benefit the American Soldier Network and third world families. They are seeking donations of gently used shoes which will be shipped to developing nations where they will be refurbished and or recycled to provide jobs. Proceeds will come back to California to benefit local veterans in the form of mental health support programs to help them cope with re-entering society.

Donation boxes will be located at all school sites, and at the High School main office, and room 613. All donations need to be completed by October 31st. No flip flops please.
