Bell Let’s Talk Day

On Wednesday, our Dragons had an opportunity to discuss Mental Health Issues on the annual Bell Let’s Talk Day. Our awesome Student Council led the school by developing a powerpoint that delivered important messages to each classroom about supporting each other, being ourselves and that it is okay to ask for help. Thanks to Mrs. Pasqualino and the Student Council for their awesome leadership in this very worthwhile initiative!
