FIRST TEACHER LUNCHEON OF THE YEAR
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2019
DROP IN THE OFFICE NO LATER THAN 10:00 a.m.
Once a month, parents host a luncheon for teachers and staff. These luncheons are a much-loved event. We usually have a theme, but all types of food and beverage are always welcomed and appreciated. You can drop your food donation in the office and someone will take it up to the teacher lounge.
This month’s theme is “back-to-school dinners.” Anything you love that is quick and easy to make when you are short on time is it!
Sign up to donate food, beverage or help to serve or clear.

First PTSA Meeting
SEPTEMBER IS SUICIDE AWARENESS MONTH
EL CERRITO HIGH PTSA PRESENTS…..
JOIN US FOR A SCREENING AND A
“THE S WORD”
Wednesday, September 11, 2019
Second Floor, Main Building
As part of National Suicide Prevention Week, The El Cerrito High PTSA invites all families to a screening of the nationally acclaimed film The S Word, followed by a guided conversation about suicide led by staff from the James Morehouse Project.Teens and adults are welcome and we encourage you to attend together to be able to continue this conversation at home.
THE S WORD:
A suicide attempt survivor is on a mission to find fellow survivors and document their stories of unguarded courage, insight, pain and humor. Along the way, she discovers a national community rising to transform personal struggles into action. THE S WORD chronicles her journey and these survivors in a powerful feature documentary that puts a human face to a topic that has long been stigmatized and buried with the lives it has claimed. Suicide affects people of all ages, races, faiths, ethnicities, gender presentations, sexual orientations, professions, and so much more.
THE S WORD skillfully weaves stories of survivors from a cross section of America including LGBT, African American and Asian American communities, who candidly share their profoundly emotional stories of trauma, mental health challenges, survival and advocacy. The film’s narrative flows organically from one story to the next, starting with personal moments and building emotional momentum before widening out to show how their journeys are driving the national movement to take the “S” word from unthinkable to preventable.
