Good afternoon students and staff, here are the announcements for Monday, May 22.

Congrats to the men’s track team, the 2017 Regional Champions.  For the 5th straight year, the thinclads won the regional championship.   It was truly a team effort, but several athletes also qualified for the state finals.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.  The You Matter Mentoring Program would like to celebrate Mental Health Fitness week by providing awareness each day about topics that affect our youth.  Today’s topics are depression and anxiety.

Depression is a mood disorder.  It is the main reason that people seek help.  The five main signs are: depressed mood, weight loss or appetite decline, feeling worthless/fatigues, difficulty concentrating or making decisions and recurring thoughts of death or suicide.  If you or someone you love suffers from any of these symptoms, please seek help.

There are more than 3 million cases diagnosed each year for anxiety.  18% of people in the U.S. have a form of anxiety disorder.  Anxiety comes in many forms:  panic attacks, social anxiety, and phobias.  It is treatable and often can be self-diagnosable.  There are many positive ways to treat both anxiety and depression:  seek help from a supportive adult or counselor and increase your nutritional value, sleep, and exercise to help manage and fight stress.

Tomorrow we are focused on Eating Disorders and Post Traumatic Stress Disorders.  If someone you love suffers from any of these issues, wear GREEN to show support for them.  We will be back tomorrow with more mental health fitness.  Remember, we all matter.

Ele's Place is planning to do a grief 101 workshop this Thursday from 10:30-12:30.  If you have lost someone or are struggling with grief issues, this is a great way to receive information involving the journey of grief and loss.  We are excited to have Katie Brickmann from Ele's Place join us for this generous support.  Please contact Mrs. Morris, Mrs. Bickel, or Mr. Andrews in the counseling office to join us. 

The Chelsea Community Fair is looking for contestants for this year’s Chelsea Fair Queen Contest.  Scholarship opportunities are available.  Information forms are available in the front office.
