    Student Assistance Program Update
    Susan White, SAP Coordinator
     
    The Student Assistance Program is up and running at ECS!! Next week Mrs. White will be launching the LUNCH TALKS program for our seventh and eighth grade students.  Lunch Talks will be an opportunity for middle school students to have lunch with Mrs. White and discuss current issues in school, normal middle school development as well as take a look at relationships and conflict resolution as they apply to life at school!!  Each teacher in seventh and eighth grade will have a sign up sheet in their classroom.  This is a drop in group so there will be a new sign up available each week.  Mrs. White looks forward to getting to know the middle school students a little better over the coming weeks.
