Dear BASE Families

Thanks for your patience as we were a bit late this week on getting the Smore together!

We wanted to shout out to Terri Hammond, our school social worker, for putting together the Mental Health Resources bulletin board pictured above. Students can find this board at the entrance of the Future Center. It features websites, hotlines, podcasts, and more, to help students support their own mental health.
