Good afternoon students and staff, here are the announcements for Tuesday, May 23.

Interact Club will have a change drive through Wednesday to help raise $1000 for shelter box.  Please consider donating your spare change during your 2nd hour class on Tuesday and Wednesday.  The winning class will win a pizza or donut party.  The shelter will be on display in the media center next week.

We are celebrating Mental Health Fitness week by providing awareness each day about topics that affect our youth.  Today’s topics are eating disorders and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Eating disorders -- such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder – include extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues. Eating disorders are serious emotional and physical problems that can have life-threatening consequences for females and males.

·         At least 30 million people of all ages and genders suffer from an eating disorder in the U.S. 1, 2

·         Every 62 minutes at least one person dies as a direct result from an eating disorder.3

·         Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness.4

(PTSD), once called shell shock or battle fatigue syndrome, is a serious condition that can develop after a person has experienced or witnessed a traumatic or terrifying event in which serious physical harm occurred or was threatened. PTSD is a lasting consequence of traumatic ordeals that cause intense fear, helplessness, or horror.  An estimated 8% of Americans − 24.4 million people − have PTSD at any given time.

Thank you for wearing green in support of all of our loved ones who are dealing with Eating Disorders or PTSD.  Remember to ask a supportive adult, counselor, or parent/guardian for help when dealing with these issues.  Tomorrow is YOU MATTER Wednesday.  Don’t forget to wear RED.  All of the You Matter Mentoring Program members will be wearing their new shirts, so look for them tomorrow!! 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. 

Attention Theatre Guild members! Don't miss the last Theatre Guild meeting of the year, on Thursday, May 25 at 3pm in the auditorium. We will elect officers for next year and discuss important plans for the summer.
