Dear Parent(s) or Guardian,
Pleasant Valley Middle School is once again promoting a program called Project SUCCESS. This program is part of the Project AWARE grant that was implemented last year in the Battle Ground School District. The goals of this program are to help prevent and reduce alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use among students, to promote positive mental health, and to provide activities that help improve the overall school climate. To accomplish these goals, students will have the opportunity to participate in school wide prevention activities, classroom lessons, and small group support meetings.
Shelley Hinkle serves as our Project AWARE funded Prevention/Intervention Specialist. Ms. Hinkle comes with a degree in Human Development and specific studies in Psychology and Neuroscience. Her background includes 16 years of school district experience and extensive knowledge working with adolescents in a classroom setting, and as a high school and middle school athletic coach in various sports. Shelley has experience as a suicide prevention counselor, is an active member of the School Mobilization Assistance Response Teams, and has received specialized training in prevention and early intervention strategies. Her office is located in P2B at Pleasant Valley Middle School, and she can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org , or by phone at (360) 885-5514.
We are confident that this program will continue to show promising results and will assist students with their personal and educational goals. If you have any further questions regarding this program please feel free to contact Shelley and she will be happy to provide you with any needed information.
