How’s Your Mental Health?

By: Claudia Zacarias

As WHS students get back into the groove of learning, Art classes throughout the day took the time to tell us about their last project, Mental Health. Several classes participated in the seven-day course that taught them how to be proactive in Mental Health situation. A huge shout out to Art (taught by the talented Mrs. Bowers) for positively informing students and trying to make Woodlake High a better place.
