Steven and Wendy Sefcik
September 25, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.
On December 1, 2010, 16-year-old cherished son, brother, friend, varsity athlete and honor student T.J. Sefcik died by suicide. How could a boy with so much love and potential make this choice? In the hopes of preventing other teens from following the same path, T.J.’s parents, Wendy and Steve, and his 17-year-old brother Matt share T.J.’s story of living with depression. Depression in teens is a common illness. 1 in 8 teenagers experience some degree of depression. It is estimated that 20% of teens will suffer at least one depressive episode before reaching adulthood.
This program gives students and parents/guardians a view of what teen depression can look like and educates them to pay attention to their mental health and emotions, something that is often pushed to the side. They describe many of the red flags that are often dismissed as typical teenage behavior. The Sefcik’s story gives hope to teens who may be struggling and don’t know what to do with how they are feeling. It empowers teens to look outside themselves to their friends and classmates, and gives parents/guardians knowledge to help understand their teens a little better.
Parents/Guardians will also have the opportunity to meet the

First Day of School for All Students: Wednesday, September 6 at All Montville Township Public Schools
The Montville Township gas line project construction is still occurring on Changebridge Road. Construction will have an impact on bus routes. Starting on Weds., Sept. 6 (first day of school) work on Changebridge will not start until 8:30 AM so the roads will be open for the morning bus routes. The road will be closed in the afternoon between Church Lane and Passaic Valley Road. This will cause delays in the afternoon bus routes.
