Staying focused on what really matters helps ensure that we know to call upon our core values when things get hard. Our school community has weathered some storms over the last 3 weeks, but none so painful as when one of our students dies by suicide. Several Mason High School sophomores saw that pain, and felt moved to help us heal by focusing on “What Really Matters.” On August 31, MHS students and staff were greeted with thousands of heartfelt messages of hope and healing - thanks to these kind sophomores for reaching out: Anna Aronson, Erica English, Michelle Crispin, Ellie Uematsu & Jessica Morse (who is not even a MHS student, but wanted to help.) Their movement has gone national, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the reminder that we all can make a difference - just by taking the time to acknowledge the specialness that lies in each of us.
