John Halligan Presentation for students in grades 6th-8th

As you know, SATEC has implemented a comprehensive bullying prevention program. We are
committed to taking serious, proactive steps to curb a problem that is found in schools everywhere.
Mr. John Halligan will be presenting the story surrounding his son’s suicide to our 6th-8th graders on Tuesday, March 21st at 1:30pm (This date has been changed from the original letter that stated he would be here on 3/22).

Mr. Halligan will tell the story of Ryan and the factors that led up to his son’s suicide. The students will gain a perspective from inside a family of a child who is a victim of bullying and cyber-bullying. They will also gain awareness about the signs and risk of teenage suicide and how to best to help a friend. As part of Mr. Halligan’s presentation, students will have the chance to ask him questions. We encourage you to visit a website named for his son: for more information.

Because of the sensitive nature of the topic, we wanted to inform you about it in advance. We
encourage you to ask your child about the presentation and discuss it together. If for any reason, you
would prefer that your child not attend this presentation, please send a written note to your child’s homeroom teacher by 8:30am on Tuesday, March 21st.
