Hello PAPA parents! My name is Marley Valencia-Likens and I am an 8th-grade student here. At the start of the pandemic, my 5th-grade teacher wanted us to make thank-you cards for nurses. When we got back pictures of smiling nurses, I knew I had to keep doing it. I teamed up with the visual art department at my school to reach more nurses. That was back at the end of 6th grade in 2021. Now, we have made over a thousand cards for nurses! But I need your help to reach even more nurses. Please encourage your kids to join in on my project. It looks good on their record and it is also very easy. For you’re kids to start my project, please have them go to the box in front of the front office. Thank you, and have a wonderful day! staff and student’s families that at-home Covid-19 tests can be ordered for free through the federal program. Every household can order 4 free tests, this can be a great layer of support in helping your school and community stay safe this winter.

Alongside is a nonjudgmental mental health chatbot that helps in times of stress anxiety sadness anger try it today. Alongside is a virtual counselor in every student’s pocket. It allows schools to reach all students who need support.
