Banneker PTSA Meeting


Benjamin Banneker PTSA Meeting

 Media Center

October 9, 2018

6:30-7:00 General PTSA Meeting

7:00-8:30 The Signs of Suicide Parent Training

Banneker parents/guardians: You are invited to attend a very special and highly important training on October 9th during the PTSA meeting (6:30PM).

MCPS has suffered great losses of student lives to suicide in these recent years, so to help parents become more informed we are providing a one-time parent training session on The Signs of Suicide. This training precedes the classroom lessons students will be receiving this fall.

Please register via Eventbrite

Suicide affects people across racial, ethnic, gender, and age groups. Often times parents ask “why” and “how did I miss this?” This fall MCPS secondary schools are providing parent training on The Signs of Suicide. This very important training will be facilitated by the Banneker Student Support Services Team (counselors, school psychologist and PPW).
