We Have Found Balance
A new, locally produced video series titled We Have Found
Balance has been released to highlight the many issues facing young adults today and open a
dialogue between students and adults. The purpose of the series is to help young adults know
their voices are being heard and there are resources available to them.
Sponsored by AMSkier Insurance, the six-part series features panel discussions from a wide
range of experts in the Western Wayne, Wayne Highlands, Forest City Regional and
Wallenpaupack school districts, as well as from members of the Chamber of North Poconos
Leadership. The experts included teachers, counselors and community organization leaders
from these districts.
The video series focuses on several issues central to young adults today. These issues include
time management, stress and anxiety, social media, drugs and alcohol and planning for the
future beyond high school. The project concludes with a segment dedicated to specific
programs that young adults can access to receive counseling and support, such as the Student
Assistance Program (SAP).
Each chapter features interviews with different students discussing these topics, each sharing
their experiences and concerns, and followed by a panel of experts analyzing the interviews and
providing advice and recommendations for ways students can cope with their issues and
resources they can access to get help.
The We Have Found Balance project was inspired by the AM Skier Insurance Eat, Sleep, Play
webinar. Wayne Memorial Hospital's long-time Community Health Manager Donna Decker and
Wayne Highlands School District Superintendent, Greg Frigoletto and Wayne County D&A
Prevention Specialist Mary Paladino, combined their experiences and passion to gather a team
of experts to produce this project. This diverse group of community stakeholders got together
with one goal in mind; to make something that would resonate with our community's students
and their parents.
The videos can be viewed at amskier.co/FoundBalance in any order or watched as one video.

segments can also be found here

Notice Regarding Student Insurance - Revised for 2018-2019 School Year
Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the parents/guardians, in the event of a student accident, to provide for accidental injury expenses either through insurance or cash payment to health care providers. For this reason, the School District would like to make you aware of the availability of a low cost, standard school approved insurance policy.
The School District does not provide insurance coverage for students. If you do not have insurance or the financial ability to cover potential injury expenses, we encourage you to review this Student Accident Insurance document.
If you choose to purchase insurance through this program, please have your child return the completed insurance form with your payment to their school and it will be forwarded to the insurance company to process.
We hope this program can be a valuable service for you and your family.
