Parents, the PTO needs your help!!!

 

There are many events scheduled that benefit all of our students at Markham. Markham has a reputation of having tremendous parent support for activities that make Markham the special school that it is. I am asking you all to consider signing up to help for upcoming events. No amount of time is too small! If you are interested in helping out you can contact the PTO directly by email at markhampto@gmail.com or respond to requests for help that come in the near future. Together we can continue to make Markham a great place for students to learn and succeed.

May is Mental Health Month

The intent of this observance is to bring awareness to growing mental health needs within our culture, and to fight the stigma associated with mental illness.  The Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” has brought national and local attention to issues related to mental illness and suicide.  Please take an opportunity to discuss the attached talking points with your children.  We need to work together to spread the message to our children that help is always available.

Discussion points for “13 Reasons Why”
