Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

One of the programs that ARCH is proud to provide to our community is Youth Mental Health First Aid Training.  This 8-hour training (over two Monday nights) teaches the knowledge and skills to identify, understand and respond to signs and symptoms of mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, suicide and substance abuse.  It helps adults to assess, listen and provide strategies for support and seeking professional help when needed.

Earth Hour:
March 24th, 2018 from 8:30pm - 9:30pm
Every year, millions of people around the world join the Earth Hour movement and switch off their lights for one hour to show support for protecting our planet and stopping climate change. This year,
Earth Hour is at 8:30 p.m. your local time on Saturday, March 24.
Earth Hour 2018 comes at a critical moment in the fight against climate change. After the United States announced its intent to withdraw from the Paris Agreement-the world's first truly global plan to address climate change-more than 2,500 leaders across America's state houses, city halls, board rooms, faith organizations, and college campuses stepped up to say they are still committed to meeting America's climate goals.
Now it's your turn.
We know that it will take action from everyone-from governments and businesses to communities and individuals-to urgently reduce the emissions that drive climate change and prepare for the inevitable impacts of a warming planet, some of which we're already experiencing.
Show your commitment to the planet this Earth Hour. On March 24, join the world in an historic lights-out display by turning off all non-essential lights at 8:30 p.m. your local time and recommit to the fight against climate change. Together, we can tackle climate change and create a future where people and nature thrive.

ATTENTION 7TH Grade Parents
Information on the Williamsburg trip

Ms. Wilson and Mrs. Toscano are currently developing plans for TEMS' 7 th Gr. trip to Williamsburg, Virginia on May 30th- June 1st, 2018.  The goal of the trip is to offer a well-balanced program of fun, learning, and social development.
In order to streamline communication and paperwork to you, all forms that need to be submitted to attend the trip are available on Schoology.  All 7th grade students should have already been admitted to the Williamsburg group.  If your student does not see Williamsburg as one of their listed groups, please let Ms. Wilson know asap so your student can be added.
The cost of the trip is $372.00.  This amount, in cash or check made out to TEMS, is payable either in full or in three installments.  The first installment is due March 15th in the amount of $124.00.  The second installment of $124.00 is due on April 5th.  The third installment of $124.00 is due May 3rd.  Students will need cash ($65.00 is recommended) once on the road for non-furnished meals (as indicated) and for personal purchases.  We will endeavor to make it a very memorable and rewarding experience so please contact the guidance counselor with any financial concerns.
