In August 2014, we were awarded a very competitive 3 year Federal grant called the "Elementary and Secondary School Counseling Program". This grant will help us give extra support to students who face struggles against long and short term physical, psychological and emotional harm. These harms, among others, include depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic disorders. Students who are failing or having difficulty in school may be due to bullying, harassment, violence and substance abuse; and becoming delinquent or engaging in criminal behavior, including violent acts. The awarded funds from this grant will help us appoint additional counselors and social workers who will have in depth engagement with affected students. Their goal will be to curb and ultimately control mental issues certain students face in their daily lives.
to English Teacher, Mrs. Lisa Wilde for being chosen to attend a Masters Class offered by The
Academy for Teachers. This is an honor. There were many nominations
and only 16 teachers were chosen to take part. Teachers who
take part in a Master Class become Fellows of the Academy and join a
growing number of the city's strongest educators.
The Academy's Master Classes
bring together the city's best minds with some of the best teachers and
are led by Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners, Poet Laureates, brilliant
academics, and prominent cultural, business,
and political experts.
