Summer break and hot weather are just around the corner, and it's time to start planning your warm-weather activities! As you make your summer to-do list, prioritize self-care and well-being. *Embrace the great outdoors. Spending time outside has numerous benefits, such as reducing stress and anxiety, improving mood, and boosting creativity. Consider activities like walking, hiking, biking, gardening, or relaxing in a shady park. *Make time for loved ones. It's easy to get caught up in our daily routines and miss out on quality time with friends and family. This summer, prioritize reconnecting with your loved ones through shared meals, game nights, movie nights, or simply picking up the phone for a catch-up call. *Prioritize sleep. During busy times, our sleep habits can suffer. Make an effort to establish a consistent sleep schedule and give your body the rest it deserves. *Most importantly, have fun and do something that brings you joy each day. Whether trying a new hobby, indulging in a favorite activity or simply taking time to relax and unwind, make sure to prioritize your happiness this summer. If you or a family member are struggling with mental health or substance use issues, remember that help is available. Care Solace, a complimentary and confidential coordination service provided by the Van Dyke Public Schools, is available 24/7/365 throughout the summer to help you find mental health care or substance use treatment providers. Call 888-515-0595 for multilingual support or visit caresolace.com/vdps to search for providers on your own or receive assistance through video chat, email, or phone. We wish you a happy and healthy summer!

Yesterday the Michigan Capitol Building was a bit more exciting, at least in the opinion of VDPS! Our Division II State Champion Lincoln Abes' Basketball Team took the floor thanks to Representative Donavan McKinney and Senator Paul Wojno, and had a great afternoon being celebrated and recognized. Do you see a future Congressman Bozeman posing there?

Wow! It may be 5-21 today, but it's 7-Eleven every day in our hearts. Congratulations to Coach Ken Kaercher of Beat the Streets Wrestling.

We don't talk enough about the great things our educators are doing, or how in-demand they are. Last week, Mrs. Whitehead and Mrs. Pluszczynski were asked to present to a group in New York state regarding some of the work being done with Silent Mentoring and absenteeism. They gave us their best ZOOM smiles for this one, and gave their best information to the group.

Thank you to Lt. Callow and Officer Manning of the Warren Police Department for holding a firearm safety session. Some of their advice: Remember to treat every firearm as if it is loaded and lock your personal devices. You can get a free lock at any police station in Michigan, or at our next session on May 29 at Carlson.
