News Release, Charles County Public Schools
May is Mental Health Awareness Month and May 7 is Children’s Mental Health Matters Day.
To participate, wear something green to raise awareness of the importance of children’s mental health and if posting on social media, use the hashtag #breakthestigma.
Each week during the month, students at the elementary, middle and high school levels are able to access grade-level material to support their mental health.
Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) school psychologists are available for parents and guardians who have concerns about their children’s social, emotional and behavioral development during the school closure.
Parents and guardians should email their child’s school psychologist or counselor. Each school has contact information listed for its psychologist and counselor under Announcements near the bottom of the school’s web page.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at [email protected]
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
