Good Evening-

We wish our French travelers well as they explore Montreal and Quebec over the next few days.

To support our Wellness Wednesdays, we had Kevin Hines speak to our students on Tuesday about suicide and how to assist others if they show warning signs. A simple smile is all someone may need each day. It was an outstanding presentation and both students and faculty loved his message. One powerful moment during the presentation was when Kevin asked all GHS staff members to stand up. He mentioned how every single one of these individuals standing wants to see you every day. He further went on to say they love working with children. It was a moving moment.

With that being said, we’d like to make you aware of the recent release of the Netflix series Thirteen Reasons Why. This series is based on the fictional book that was released 10 years ago. It follows a group of high school students as they follow the story that was left behind for them by their classmate who died by suicide.

The trailer and advertisements for the series can be misleading. In watching the series, young people and teenagers could perceive the message that suicide is a viable and/or romanticized option. The content of the series is extremely graphic with troubling scenes throughout each episode, which may be difficult for the teenage mind to watch and process in an appropriate way.


Please find out if your child has read the book, watched the series, or heard of the series; if they have, please talk with them about it. We also suggest that you research the series so you understand what your child may have been exposed to.

Thank you for your attention to this very important topic. Should you feel you need more information or support, please contact the school counseling department.

On a lighter note, I hope you have an enjoyable week.
