The Sources of Strength program at our school is a peer leadership program setup to help prevent suicide by creating connections within our school community with a focus on hope, help, and strength.

Sources of Strength Week  

Date: TBD

  • Monday: Students write acknowledgments in LA classes on paper hearts.  These hearts will be hung in the hallways later in the week.
  • Tuesday: Represent your Healthy Activity Day by dressing up in one of your favorite activities or passions.
  • Wednesday: Team buiding day in PACK/CO-OP... more details in the classroom.
  • Thursday: Music Day.  Music will be played between each passing period.

Parents can help out by talking with your student about what their Sources of Strength (SoS) are that they can call upon when feeling anxious, sad, or angry.  It's great to share yours with them too.
