Resource Fair
December 14th during lunch
While this time of year is often very bright and cheery for most, it is not always the case for everyone.  In an attempt to prepare all students and their families for finals and the upcoming break, Arcadia High School will be hosting its second resource fair on December 14 during lunch! This event is organized by Teen Lifeline, but will include several different agencies around the valley including Banner Behavioral Health, Aurora Behavioral Health, Crisis Response, Glsen, and many others

The purpose of this event is to offer information and resources to both students and parents at Arcadia to insure a safe and happy holiday season for all. It will be a great opportunity to learn more and ask questions regarding mental health, substance abuse concerns, and teen suicide awareness. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Mandy Turner, the school social worker.
