As many of you know, the book entitled 13 Reasons Why was made into a controversial Netflix series, in which a 17-year-old teen commits suicide and chronicles her journey to this tragic end via audio cassettes. It is our hope that by reading and having discussions about 13 Reasons Why, you will be able to have informed, powerful conversations with your child. If you are interested in participating in a fall book study on 13 Reasons Why, please plan on attending our last meeting on Wednesday, October 18th at 5:00 pm in the library. Thank you for your cooperation in this endeavor.
Any 14-year-old student who aspires to work in the medical world is encouraged to volunteer at JC Blair Memorial Hospital in Huntingdon. Interested participants can specialize in patient care or clerical responsibilities in a hospital setting. Applications are located in the main office.
