Concussion Baseline Testing (Spring Sports 2016)

TO: JUNIOR, FRESHMAN AND NEW TRANSFER Spring 2017 Athletes (Soccer, Lacrosse, Track & Field)

FROM: Lisa Gross, Certified Athletic Trainer


You MUST show up with your Surface Pro and headphones. The required Concussion Baseline Testing will take place in Windmoor D during lunch/activity and will take approximately 20 minutes. Bring your own Surface Pro, headphones, and your lunch. Upon completion of the test (for the remainder of Activity period), you may eat your lunch in Windmoor or go to the Commons. The room will be limited to 12 participants per period, so sign up for your day early.

This baseline test will be used in the future if/when a concussion occurs. You will retake the test at the appropriate time and it will be compared to the baseline to estimate a safe return to play.

Per all Spring coaches, failure to complete this test during the scheduled time will result in being withheld from competition.

STA Kindness Week March 7-10, 2016
Each year in March, Peer Helpers sponsor and host STA's annual Kindness week. This year, we are lucky to have some help from our sisters in NHS. 
Each day, we will host events which will focus on kindness toward ourselves and others. This year, our activities will center around women's empowerment and celebrating International Women's Day on March 8th
As a way of extending our support to "the dear neighbor," we will be donating proceeds raised from the week's events to the Women's Employment Network in Kansas City. Click HERE for more information about this wonderful organization. 
Listen to announcements, check moodle and email for news and updates this and next week! If you have any questions, please feel free to Ms. Johnson or one of your Peer Helpers! See our  attached flyer for information all events!!
