Don’t Give Up Movement in RSU 18

Messalonskee Middle School guidance counselor Kris Croteau read about the Don’t give up Movement over the summer and decided to bring this inspirational project to RSU 18.
Amy Wolff and her family started the movement in response to the high suicide rate in their small Oregon community and designed signs with messages such as “you matter,” “one day at a time,” and “you are enough” that they placed around their town. The response was staggering and what began with a few yard signs soon led to a global movement. Wolff now runs an amazing non-profit that provides a wide array of inspirational products at cost.
Through the Drug-Free Community Grant, Ms. Croteau bought signs for all the schools in the district and a few additional ones to put up around the community.
