Did you know that students who are feeling stressed, sad, or even thinking about suicide are very likely to tell a friend or teacher? If someone shares with you that they are very sad, having a hard time and/or feel like they want to die, the most important thing you can do is take their feelings seriously, listen without judgment, and help them get to a trusted adult for more support. Remember, your mental health matters!

Mrs. Wieland has four children, but has only been pregnant twice!! Holy Triplets Batman.

Mr. Martinek has been to 15 rap concerts and his mother was in a motorcycle gang!

Mrs. McCann’s modeling picture was published in a magazine. The picture was even in one of the Decatur yearbooks. She was the owner of a hedgehog. She has danced in live stage productions, and even jumped from a cliff with a rope swing into an icy mountain stream!

And last but not least, Mr. Dj Thompson sang the National Anthem for the Governor of Maryland in 2005!
