Time: 9:00-11:00 am Cost: $40

Perry Township Schools has become aware of a new series on Netflix called “13 Reasons Why,” which is quickly gaining popularity among our students. The story centers around a young girl, who leaves behind audio recordings for 13 people who she says played a role in her decision to take her own life. Mental health advocates have raised concerns over the message conveyed.
Attached to this email is a resource from the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) for educators and parents. The attachment has more detailed information and resources we believe you will find useful. A few important points include the following:
- The National Association of School Psychologists does not recommend that vulnerable youth view this series. This is particularly important for adolescents who are isolated, struggling, or vulnerable to suggestive images and storylines.
- While older teens can differentiate between TV drama and reality, parents should consider watching the series with them, and engage in thoughtful conversation to help process the issues addressed.
- Review the warning signs of suicide. Common signs include:
- Suicide threats, both direct (“I am going to kill myself.” “I need life to stop.”) and indirect (“I need it to stop.” “I wish I could fall asleep and never wake up.”) Threats can be verbal or written, and they are often found in online postings.
- Giving away prized possessions.
- Preoccupation with death in conversation, writing, drawing, and social media.
- Changes in behavior, appearance/hygiene, thoughts, and/or feelings. This can include someone who is typically sad who suddenly becomes extremely happy.
- Emotional distress.
- Reinforce suicide is not a solution. It is an irreversible choice regarding a temporary problem. There is help and hope.
Perry Township Schools is a resource for your family. We stand ready to help. If you believe your child may be struggling, please contact your school counselor or administrator.

Members of the PMMS 7th and 8th grade girls basketball teams recently traveled to the Greenwood Meadows senior community near school to perform Christmas carols for the residents!
Special education students from Perry Meridian Middle School collected cash donations and created a budget for children in need in Perry Township. They purchased and wrapped gifts for the holiday season and created cards for each child. The group then attended a lunch at McDonald’s where they worked on their community skills of ordering, counting money, and social etiquette. This experience enriched the curriculum and education of these students while providing a direct correlation to the community for this holiday season. Teachers Lindsey Dezelan, Ryan Short, Amy Phillips, and Malissa Waltz provided guidance in language arts, math and philanthropy to accompany the field trip.

Alison Dillman, language arts teacher, has been voted “Teacher of the Year” by the staff at Perry Meridian Middle School.
Following is the text of the nomination form that explained why she was a worthy nominee:
* Concern for individual students. From the start of every school year, Alison works diligently on the behalf of her students. While a computer program may schedule students randomly into teacher’s classrooms, Alison takes her time to purposely rewrite schedules for individual students. It’s important to her that all of her students, regardless of their level, receive the best instruction possible. There are few teachers who go to this length to ensure students are in the best classes for their needs.
