A number of Averill Park High School students are participating in the “A World of Difference Peer Leadership” training. The program is designed to help students recognize bias and the harm it inflicts on individuals and society. We are very proud of the students involved in this program, who will undoubtedly have a positive impact on our school community.
Bravo to all band and chorus students that participated in the 2019 All-County Festival! Those who attended had a great time listening to your musical talents.
APCSD held a free viewing of “Screenager: Next Chapter” which examined the science of teen’s emotional changes, social media and what can be done in homes and in schools. Afterward, school counselors led a very interesting group discussion. Thank you to all who attended and were involved.
