National Stress Awareness Month 

April is National Stress Awareness Month. These following weeks can be filled with stress and sleepless nights. As we get closer to the summer and go through exams, you may start to feel anxious or stressed. We want you to know that you’re not alone, and our school community is here to help you. So if you start feeling too stressed out at any point this month, please talk to someone about it, like a teacher or school counselor you trust. Our school community is here to support you, or you can talk to another teen at Teen Lifeline by calling or texting the number on the back of your school ID. Remember, you are not alone.

Art Show 

The Florence High School International Baccalaureate Art Show took place last week! Students from across FHS visited exhibits and spoke with artists.

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end, the organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
