Wednesday Wellness Wish: That was “You will be Found” from the smash Broadway musical, Dear Evan Hansen. As we hit the homestretch of our school year together, I want to remind everyone that you are not alone. Whether you are going through a tough time personally or academically, there are people who are ready and willing to help you with anything you need. Be sure to touch base with your school counselor, a staff member, or any other adult in the building who can either point you in a good direction or work with you. It is also important to speak with friends and
family so they can be the support team that you need. We all feel alone sometimes. As the song says, “So let the sun come streaming in, 'Cause you’ll reach up and you’ll rise again. If you only look around, You will be found.” We have your back Pelicans. Reach out if you need anything at all.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” ― Albert Einstein
