May is Mental Health Awareness Month. In honor of the month, our Health and Wellness Tinker Team will be sharing some facts and hosting events about Mental Health for the rest of the month. Mental Health Awareness month was first recognized and celebrated in 1949. Since then, each year has focused on a specific theme as it relates to Mental Health. The theme for this year is More than Enough. According to the CDC, Mental illness impacts more than 50 million people in the US. One way that you can take action during this month is by talking about mental health. The more we have conversations with our peers, the more it will be normalized. If you or a peer are struggling during this month, feel free to stop by Tinker Health Services to connect with one of our mental health counselors.
Do you have questions about healthy relationships (red flag/green flags), concerns around dating violence, conversations around relationships in general, boundaries, self-care, etc. We are happy to announce that an Umbrella advocate will be on campus monthly at Tinker House for anyone who would like to stop in. Their first visit will be May 15 from 9-3.
Mrs. Prevost’s Photography II classes invite you to take a look at the work hanging on the first floor of Ranger. It will be coming down soon, so don’t miss your chance!

Congratulations to all of the dancers who performed in the Dance Class Open House last night! Your hard work and your love for dance was shown in each dance you performed! Thanks to all for a wonderful show!
Right before spring break, we had a guest speaker after Chapel for the juniors and sophomores. Dr. Bryan Duff from the St. J School got up here and showed a Harry Potter mash-up made by kids. You might remember that a mad cow was the villain and that Baby Yoda got vaporized by the cow’s extra-spicy milk. Dr. B’s point was that kids are hilarious and fun. In the next breath, Dr. B said that lots of kids down the hill need serious help with their reading and writing. Next year’s juniors and seniors can provide that help by signing up for a new fall course — a course about literacy and mentoring — that will include afterschool meetings with the kids. If you’re interested, please see Mr. Eaton this week.
