- The week of January 12, 2015 Langley High School is providing a depression awareness and suicide prevention training as part of the SOS Signs of Suicide Prevention Program to our 10th grade students. The program has proven to be successful at increasing students’ awareness of mental health concerns along with creating strategies that students can use when they are concerned about themselves or a friend. Our goal is to:
- help our students understand that depression is treatable,
- provide our students training to identify signs of potential depression and suicidality in themselves or a friend,
- help our students know who in the school they can turn to for help if they need it.
Our plan is to implement the SOS program to our 10th graders the week of January 12 via Health/PE 9 classes. Students will view the SOS Friends for Life video and complete a brief questionnaire. The Student Services Department will review questionnaires and follow up with students and parents when necessary. Parents will have the opportunity to preview the SOS video that will be shown to students, receive handouts on community mental health resources, and will view the trusted adult video on January 7, 2015 at 7:30 a.m. in the Auditorium. Parents who do not wish for their child to participate in the SOS program will be required to return an opt-out form before January 9, 2015 to Sonya Williams.
- On January 8, at 6:30 pm, Langley will host a Curriculum Night Program. Parents of current 9th, 10th, and 11th graders are invited to hear information from teachers about curricula differences amongst the different levels of core subjects. Information and presentations from elective departments will be presenting options as well. Information to presented may include:
· Amount of homework given nightly
· Teacher expectations of their students
· Projects due throughout the year
· Skills needed for success in the course
· Differences between the general level/honors level and/or AP level
· Time management, commitment, balance, and work ethic requirements
· Work samples from all levels of the course
· Differences in textbooks by levels
In order to help families prepare for Curriculum Night, click here for the course selection planning sheet. This can be used to guide conversations with your student about plans for the next school year and will assist in preparing for graduation.
