Attention students, staff, and parents: project safe CRCA is hosting a town hall meeting on suicide awareness and prevention.  Local experts and panelists lead an honest, vital conversation for parents and teens. The goal of this Town Hall-style meeting is to provide a safe environment where attendees can gain a deeper understanding of the causes, warning signs and coping strategies regarding depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation. This is a FREE event, no registration required!  Please join us at this event on Monday, November 18th at the ELSC.  The panel discussion will take place from 6:30-8pm and will feature panelists from a variety of community organizations as well as a Green Bandana student from Kennedy High School. Prior to the event starting at 5pm there will be vendor tables available with resources including foundation 2 and Kennedy High School Green Bandana.  See Mrs. Melone for more details.

Attention Sophomores: Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership (HOBY) is the nation’s foremost youth leadership development organization. HOBY Programs provide youth with unique leadership training to make a better world. State seminars are offered over the summer and allow students to recognize their leadership talents and apply them in becoming effective, ethical leaders in their home, school and community. Selected students attend a 3 day seminar in June to participate in hands on leadership activities and learn how to lead others and make a positive impact in their community. There is an application process that will determine Kennedy’s representative at HOBY. If you are interested in learning more about HOBY and the nomination process, please stop in the Counseling Office by Monday, November 18 to sign up showing your interest.
