Please join us for our first meeting with Dr. Koulentes on Wednesday, October 16th at 7pm in Room 006 (down cafeteria hallway, down the stairs, on your right.)  We will discuss an overview of the group’s goals and what we are planning for the year.  Dr. Koulentes will share the LHS perspective, initiatives for our students and partial tour. 

Topics we have discussed and may continue throughout the year include current issues facing high school students, mental strength and sports, “overthinking”, maintaining parental wellness/self-care, anxiety (physiological effects & strategies to manage), effects of smart phones and social media on teens, effects of light (LED, Blue, Infrared), mindfulness, vaping/drugs and alcohol, college planning (stress, myths, questions), etc.
