Thank an Employee…
Have you ever wanted to thank someone that has made a difference in your child’s education or well being at our school? Or even better, thank someone because Thanksgiving is right around the corner? Here’s your chance…
If you go to the Dansville’s website, and locate the tab on the right labeled “Thank an Aggie Employee” you can fill out a simple form to thank someone in our district, not just a teacher.
These forms are sent to an administrator who then “delivers” them to the intended employee. This allows administrators to actually “read” the good things their staff members are doing. Sometimes we are unable to hear the kind words being said to our staff, and it is nice to hear the great things they are doing for our students.
It is also just a nice way to make someone’s day…

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.
