Anxiety Training 2023
A Grant-Funded Partnership
Millcreek Township School district has been given an opportunity through a performance grant to provide districtwide education to our students, staff, and parents about anxiety and how to deal with it.
Student sessions will be held once at each building beginning in February. Students whose parents have opted-out of having them listen to the presentation will be provided with an alternative activity while the session takes place.
