Shout Out!

Colton Marek and Steven Graves, members of the student council, went above and beyond to make the lunch happen for the teachers last Tuesday. They made a presentation to Suzi, owner of the Granger Red & White grocery store, to see if they could donate meat for the sandwiches. Apparently they did an awesome job because Red & White gave the meat, bread, chips, and the chopped veggies. A little birdie even said Colton Marek donated the cookies.

We see you Colton and Steven. We see you Suzie and Granger Red & White. We see you and we appreciate you.


*Side note: Love to grill? Red & White can hook you up with some of the best bacon hamburger patties around. They also have seasoned pork, chicken, and beef ready for the pit. Fire it up!

Simply Put

Mental health is made up of our feelings, our bodies, and how we treat one another.

Stigma is when someone, or you yourself, looks at you in a bad way because you have a mental health condition.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month ~ Stop the Stigma

Relaxation Techniques:

Yoga

Meditation

Positive Thinking

Deep Breathing


Stress Management Technique:

Mindful Breathing: For 1-minute focus on your breathing. Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. (Don't worry about the bad breathe. Just saying.) If your mind wonders, bring attention back to your breathing.

Nearly 50% of adults experience a mental health illness at some point in their lives.

No worries here. Chris Orton has got the savanna under control. The elementary garden was relocated to the playground, allowing easy access for teachers and students. Meanwhile, mother nature has taken over the old one located behind the elementary. I am sure problem solving skills and creative thinking will transform this garden once again.

Meanwhile, thank you Chris for your hard work!

Something good to know if you are giving carnations for Mother's Day:

Pink and red carnations are given to mother’s that are still alive, while white ones are for those that have passed away.

Repeats Repeatedly Repeated

And still some will say they never knew...

Friendly Reminder: The end of the school year is quickly approaching. Don't let obligations surprise you. Has your student paid the lunch bill? Laptop insurance? Any other outstanding fines? Turned in or renewed library books? Given the teacher back what was borrowed? Ask your student to check with cafeteria, library, office, and teachers to make sure! Thank you for your understanding.


STUDENTS: Do not loan out your calculators, chargers, or laptops. You are responsible for their care and return. If you forgot yours, do not ask a classmate to borrow theirs. Remember yours. *TEST DATES: Remember your calculator. There are no extras in the library to borrow another one!



Dude. be nice
