Every Friday afternoon our middle school students receive lessons in the social-emotional realm from a team consisting of our school counselor Rachel Petraska, our Student Assistance Professional Amy Sayre, our PE / Health Educator Kelly Spreen and a host of other contributors.
|Ellen and Rebecca lead a discussion with our Winton 7th grade|
|Some fascinating information about the impact of drugs / alcohol on young brains|
They provided SCS students with information about their first hand experience in treating patients hospitalized from complications of substance abuse, including overdoses. They began their presentation talking about brain development and how it specifically relates to adolescence.
|Yes - Jean Luc Picard did show up for this lesson too :-)|
We are so appreciative of these residents taking time from their work to share with our students.
