All Student Announcements (7-12):

Chatfield FFA has launched a Virtual Fun Run/Walk to help #BreaktheStigma on Mental Health.  This event runs until Friday Nov 5 and we will have a Celebration/Memorial on Saturday Nov 6 with a meal and a display where you can artistically memorialize a loved one or yourself  - people who battle or have lost the battle to mental health need to be recognized.  Every participant who signs up receives a medallion and there is an option to purchase a t-shirt if you wish.  Teams can be formed and signed up together.  Adults and Community members are encouraged to sponsor students to help increase participation.  Sign up at the website below

The FFA will be continuing their efforts to promote talking about the struggle and encouraging positive mental health habits in the high school between now and Nov 5.   If you would like to be a part of this planning please let Ms Fritz know.  Anyone can help - we are all in this together
