Suicide Prevention Day
Chino High School
The death of a friend and student named Rosa Garcia at the beginning of the school year impacted many of the students and staff on our campus. ASB felt it was important to bring awareness to the issues and support student/staff affected by suicide. To do this, we planned a lunch time activity in which over 10 clubs set up tables and participated, each planning a specific activity. Among these activities were things like handing out kindness grams, clothespins with positive messages, or hand made suicide awareness ribbons. We also invited our school counselors to set up a table and provide a variety of resources for those effected by suicide. The student body dressed up in suicide awareness colors–teal and purple–and visited the various booths set up in the quad.
