Signs of Suicide
 
Dear Parent or Guardian:
 
The adolescent years are marked by a roller-coaster ride of emotions—difficult for students, their parents, and educators. It is easy to misread depression as normal adolescent turmoil; however, depression (among the most common of mental illnesses) appears to be occurring at a much earlier age. Depression—which is treatable—is a leading risk factor for suicide. In addition, self-injury has become a growing problem among youth.
 
To proactively address these issues, [our school] is offering depression awareness and suicide prevention training as part of the SOS Signs of Suicide® Prevention Program. The program aims to increase help seeking by students concerned about themselves or a friend. SOS is listed on SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices and in a randomized control study, the SOS High School Program showed a reduction in self-reported suicide attempts by 40% (BMC Public Health, July 2007).
Our goals in participating in this program are straightforward:
  • To help our students understand that depression is a treatable illness
  • To explain that suicide is a 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 themselves or a friend
  • To impress upon youth that they can help themselves or a friend by taking the simple step of talking to a responsible adult about their concerns
  • To help students know whom in the school they can turn to for help, if they need it

Curriculum Night
The 7th Grade Curriculum Night will be on Wednesday, September 14 from 7:00 - 8:09 PM. All 7th grade parents will start in their designated Block 1 classroom. On Tuesday, Summit students were given schedules regarding the order of events and locations for Curriculum Night. You will follow your specific block schedule, so it will be necessary to have this information with you on Wednesday evening. Please check with your 7th grader and make sure they have brought it home for you.  If your student does not have their schedule, we will have copies ready for you at your child's first block at the beginning of Curriculum Night. We look forward to seeing you!

Erin's Law
January 2016
 
 
Dear Parents,
 
During the month of February, Springman students will be participating in a prevention program presented by the social workers on sexual harassment and sexual abuse. Erin’s Law was passed in 2011 in Illinois to ensure the education and prevention of sexual abuse. Erin’s Law is named after abuse survivor Erin Merryn, who is working to get all 50 states to pass legislation that mandates sexual abuse prevention education for public school children. The law’s goal is similar to efforts surrounding anti-bullying, Internet safety and drug prevention. The purpose of this program is to teach children to recognize and cope with potentially difficult situations.
 
 
If you have any questions please call your grade/team social worker.
 
Thank you,
Rachel Grossman                 Emmy Schwartz                   Dina Shiner               Frances Dotson
