It seems in the last few years, we are hearing more and more about self-injury among youth in society. Whether because a kid is feeling overwhelmed with stress, frustration, sadness, or just to gain attention – we hear about kids and teens that are cutting themselves or giving themselves burns. This is a serious and wide-spread behavior that we all need more information on. Whether it is your child or your child’s friend, what do you do if you find out they are harming themselves? Is it a suicide attempt? Is it for attention? Do they just not know how to cope?
Here at Dansville Schools, we want to help you gather information to sort through what may be going on and what to do. Kirsti Reeves, a Licensed Professional Counselor, who is experienced at speaking about self-injury and has worked with kids and adults who struggle with this, is going to be coming to Dansville High School to share how to be proactive in addressing this issue. She is going to address questions such as: How do I recognize the signs of self-injury? What does this really mean? And, How do I respond to my child if I find out they are exhibiting this behavior?
We hope to see you here on Thursday, November 6th at 5:00 p.m. in the High School Library. Click here to see the flyer.

Amazon Shopping Fundraiser
We are excited to announce a new fundraiser for Dansville High School. The Amazon fundraiser we are trying is provided by SimpleFundraiser.net. There are no products to sell, volunteers to organize, or money to collect. This fundraiser is an internet based program specifically with Amazon.com. Dansville High School will make 5-7% commission on purchases you make when shopping on Amazon’s website when you use the special link created for DHS. There is no additional cost to shopping on Amazon through our special link and using this link when shopping Amazon is all that is required to earn the 5-7% for DHS . You can find the special Amazon link at the bottom of this post.
For this to be a successful program we need to share these links with as many people as we can so that as many people as possible remember to use this special link to Amazon if they are shopping on Amazon. So please forward this link to as many people as you can, share the link on your social media sites, and encourage people to use the link when shopping on Amazon.
