May Is Mental Health Awareness Month
There is no better time to increase awareness of mental health and make a difference in our communities. In this spirit, we would like to share with you information from Project AWARE Ohio, which is led by the Ohio Department of Education’s Office for Exceptional Children in conjunction with partners from the Ohio Mental Health Network for School Success (OMHNSS) and Center for School-Based Mental Health Programs (CSBMHP) at Miami University. Project AWARE Ohio is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we have developed a series of 4 (weekly) e-newsletters highlighting our work statewide and in each of our three partnering counties (Cuyahoga, Warren and Wood counties). Project AWARE Ohio’s Mission and Vision (in partnership with the Healthy Schools and Communities Resource Team): To help local community collaborations improve the health, well-being, and educational needs of children and families, so that children and families will be socially, emotionally, and behaviorally resilient and productive citizens. For more information about Project AWARE resources, please visit: Ohio Department of Education’s Project AWARE Ohio webpage  Please Give us Feedback on our Resources! We need your help! Please complete this brief survey to give us feedback on the Ohio Project AWARE information briefs you may have received over the past year (or reviewed at the above website). We want to assess what you liked about the information briefs, what you didn’t like, as well as what may have prevented you from viewing the information briefs. This survey is very brief and will help us improve our future resources. Thank you!
Youth Mental Health First Aid Project AWARE Ohio offers YMHFA trainings throughout Ohio. Youth Mental Health First Aid is the help offered to a young person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate treatment and support are received or until the crisis resolves. Youth Mental Health First Aid classes are being offered to adults who work with and/or live with adolescents age 12-18.

Spelling Bee 2016
Can You Spell..........
Belpre Elementary hosted our first district spelling bee for grades 5-8 on Tuesday, February 17th.  Thirty-two spellers from grades 5-8 spelled it out in front of their peers to take home the winning trophy!  Our winners were:  First place - Jacob Hazelett, Second place - Ethan Coyner, Third place - Natalie Miller, and Fourth place - Emma Matheny.
These top 4 winners will compete in the Regional Spelling Bee at Marietta High School on Friday, March 18th.  Congratulations to these students! 

   A new "Bike Fixit Station" has been installed at the Belpre City Schools Administration Building on 2014 Rockland Avenue. One of the posts serves as a repair station and the other post is a pump. We hope cyclists in the area will find it useful.
