  • EPIC ARTS Countdown: 5 School Days – one week from today!

Who are the people that Epic Arts is supporting?
One person’s story is the story of Po Sakun. Growing up in a wheelchair in Kampot, Cambodia, Po’s neighbors told his mother not to waste money and time sending him to school as few job options would be available to him. Po learned about Epic Arts and started studying sign language. In 2011, passionate about their mission, he began as a volunteer receptionist before becoming a full-time administrator. His story is a metaphor for Epic Arts: Be courageous in overcoming economic and social obstacles publically, loudly, and creatively.

Reminder: Student volunteers are needed to help make the Epic Arts visit to YIS smooth. If you are interested in being involved, please come to a 15-minute volunteer meeting during morning break TODAY in M301 to find out how you can help. (Ms. Urquhart)

  • EPIC ARTS Countdown: 6 School Days!

Why does Epic Arts need to advocate for seeing ability and not disabilities?
Cambodia’s treatment of people with mental and physical disabilities can still be terrible. There is still mental illness lingering in the older generation that survived the Khmer Rouge regime. Additionally, health care systems especially in rural areas are virtually non-existent and many people still live their lives in poverty. Birth defects are considered punishments for bad karma from previous lives. Many people in Cambodia still view people with disabilities as something to be ashamed off and many people are hidden from society.

Reminder: Student volunteers are needed to help make the Epic Arts visit to YIS smooth. If you are interested in being involved, please come to a 15-minute volunteer meeting during morning break on Monday, May 21st in M301 to find out how you can help. (Ms. Urquhart)

  • Mental Health Awareness Week

Hi, this is MEHC (Mental and Emotional Health Club), and for today’s daily fact will be that: Mental health problems have nothing to do with being lazy or weak and many people need help to get better. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:

  • Biological factors, such as genes, physical illness, injury, etc.
  • Life experiences, such as trauma or a history of abuse
  • Family history of mental health problems

(MEHC)

  • Hey volleyballers! (Repeat)

On Monday and Wednesday, May 7th and 9th, there will be open gym for volleyball after school. Both days are open to both girls and boys. As we get the numbers of players, we’ll decide to split if necessary. Hope to see you there! (Grace C)
