Welcome back to Student Council's Mental Health Awareness Week. Yesterday we learned about Positive Affirmations, here's a new one for today: I haven’t even seen what I am capable of yet. Start each day with a positive mindset and end each day with gratitude for your relationships and experiences. 

Today's Mental Health Theme is: SELF-CARE! We often see self-care portrayed as buying stuff for ourselves or getting a massage, but self-care is really about giving yourself space to recharge and focus on your own mental health. Don't let the stress of finals sneak up on you, plan ahead and create space to be your best self. Check out the @LCHSTitans twitter to see if you've earned a self-care badge for the day!                                                                                                                  

 

Fun-Plex is now accepting applications for our summer positions. See the posters in the guidance office for more information.
