Getting Well at LCHS

by: Kristina Aguilera
33.PNGDiversity Club is one of many clubs here at LCHS. Their mission is to help spread awareness and education about mental health. Throughout the year they have many missions. These missions range from the Hygiene drive at the beginning of the year to the Mental Health Awareness week at the end of the year. This year Diversity Club teamed up with the Wellness Day committee and attempted to hold both events on the same day.

The Wellness/Mental Health day consisted of first the cookout and activity fair, and the wellness activities were to follow. The activity fair consisted of multiple business booths. Some of these businesses include NAMI, Planned Parenthood, Womankind, and many more. Alongside the activity fair the members of Diversity Club also hosted a cookout. They raised money and supplies from local businesses, and some of the members personally grilled the food. The club prepared burgers, brats, and hotdogs for the students and staff at LCHS. Sadly the weather was uncooperative for the day, and it started to sprinkle upon the cookout. Thankfully we were able to move inside and continue the rest of the activity fair, and  Wellness Day was rescheduled for the following Friday.
Capture.PNG Wellness Day Take 2 was a blast! Many different activities were offered for students, such as kickball with Mr. Rankin and Mrs. Scheeler, and Dodgeball with Mr. Corrado and Mr. Botz. During wellness day each teacher/assorted staff member here at LCHS has two events or activities that students can participate in. These activities consist of different ways in which students and staff can keep their bodies and minds well, mentally and physically. Coloring for relaxation and ultimate frisbee are a few of the other popular activities that many chose to participate in on wellness day.
