On Wednesday, September 19th, about 30 people, including staff and students from Rye High School, took part in an amazing training centered around wellness and resiliency, and how strength can play a huge role in a personís well-being.

Rye High School, along with several middle schools in district 70, were awarded a grant from the Attorney General last spring for the Sources of Strength training. Sources of Strength is a program aimed at prevention for suicide, violence, bullying and substance abuse. This program is very different as it helps empower peer leaders and caring adults to help others by showing them that we are more powerful working together and using our strengths together, rather than alone.

Last spring five staff members of Rye High School, along with staff members from other District 70 schools, were trained as adult leaders. The school then decided on students that would be student leaders based on different character qualities, student recommendations, and teacher recommendations. Through team-building and group activities, students and staff learned about the different strengths and how to help peers when they are in need.
