Ms.Eryn's Tip of the Week

Ask for help! If you are struggling, it is okay to ask for help. I know it can be hard to reach out, at the same time it can feel good to lean on someone else for support. Whether you need help with your homework or you just need help to talk through a problem. Not sure who to talk to? Check out Counseling Corner for several resources.
