HS DAILY – Wednesday, April 11, 2018


  • Message from the Mental and Emotional Health Club

‘Loosing people we love is a terrible thing and to have to go through the grief that comes with it can be painful, isolating, and frustrating. It isn’t something people move through quickly and isn’t something you can do alone.
Last week, Mr. Clark was visited Nagoya International School to show his solidarity and offer support for those who were affected by the death of a student who was hit by a car and killed.
The Mental and Emotional Health Club (MECH) thought the school community should do something for Nagoya International school too. On Thursday April 12, we are going to try and fold 1,000 cranes as a gift. Join MEHC (The Mental Emotional Health Club) in the library as we work towards our goal! (MECH)
