WHAT is S.A.P.?
Student Assistance Program ...
SAP is a state program at all public secondary schools in PA,
and the Student Assistance Team at JS Middle School.
We are here to help students deal with problems that may
be stressful and interfere with school success.
Stressors like: drugs/alcohol grades family
overwhelming feelings abuse harassment
Students, parents/guardians, school staff, or friends can
make confidential referrals to the SAP team for help. We
can help students figure out ways to deal with these problems.

HOW can someone get help from the SAP Team?
At JS Middle School, we have a locked mailbox by the
Guidance Office that only SAP members can get into.
There are orange referral papers with “SAP” printed
on front … fill it in and drop it in the mailbox! You do not
have to put your name on it unless you are the person who
needs help, or if you don’t mind if we know who made the
If you still have questions or you are not sure if you should
make a referral to SAP, you can ask any member!
WHY does SAP sponsor red ribbon week ??
Our SAP team believes that this
annual celebration in October can be a *FUN* way
to bring attention to the risks and consequences of
drug and alcohol abuse and to encourage the practice
of drug and alcohol resistance!
