“Like” – Watch a profound documentary on the effects of technology and social media. Technology is here to stay and social platforms are a place to connect, share and care, but what’s really happening? Are we addicted? How do we stop? Where do we start? What do we need to know? By understanding the effects of technology and social media on the brain, on our lives and on our civilization, we can learn how to navigate it safely together.”

BLOOD DRIVE -in honor of Debbie Youngblood, former Wellness Coordinator for the district. In November of 2017, Debbie was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, known as AML. She spent over three months in the hospital where she received 7 transfusions that helped save her life. Today she is in remission thanks to blood donors.
