Students:It is your responsibility to clean up after yourselves in the bathrooms. Throw paper towels in the trash cans provided, don’t sit on the sinks, flush the toilets!

Students receive progress reports today.Remember, it’s not too late to fix those low grades.  All students have the opportunity to make the Honor Roll and Middle School kids can attend the Reward Dance in January.  What can you do if your grades are not where they should be? Do all your work, ask your teachers, friends or family members for help.  There are lots of resources here at PAPA.  If you are nervous about asking a teacher for help, have a friend go with you or send an e-mail to the teacher.  Many teachers are available to help at lunch or after school, but you need to ask!

YouthCHAT members attended a State-wide Suicide Prevention Retreat. Read all about it on PAPA’s website:
