Featured Story: Safety and Wellness Expo
This is the image for the news article titled Featured Story: Safety and Wellness ExpoThank you to everyone who visited our Safety and Wellness Expo!

We have enjoyed listening to our featured keynote presenters, Special Agent Dave Alley and CARE of SE Michigan, talk about protecting kids from trafficking and Internet crime to current drug trends and what parents need to know.

We also appreciated Families Against Narcotics, CARE, Lisa Fischer, and Mistie Ryan's breakout sessions about vaping prevention and information, why won't they listen: getting kids to cooperate, sound healing, and yoga for the family.

Car seat safety checks, mental health providers, suicide prevention, vision screenings, nutritional experts, a Fortis School Security Officers meet-and-greet, and therapy dogs were several important parts of this incredibly informative evening.  There were so many amazing representatives who joined us in the exhibition area, sharing information about how they can help support our families!

Lake Shore High School Class of 2013 graduate Carlie White (Craven) shared her own business called Kin and Bloom Wellness with us!  White, the founder of Kin & Bloom Wellness, described the business as a fitness oriented wellness center located in the metro-Detroit area.

White said, "I started Kin & Bloom for two reasons; to address the one dimensional culture surrounding weight lifting and to help others build on the foundation of fitness to embody their favorite version of themselves. Mind, body, and spirit come together with science to build a wellness program founded on a celebration of YOU!"  She also loves supporting the Shorian Nation!

Main organizer of the event was Lake Shore High School Principal Dr. Bross.  We have a commitment to engage with our families in positive ways to help support students who attend Lake Shore Public Schools.

She shared, "Our hope for the Safety and Wellness Expo is to connect our families to community organizations and businesses that can help provide their family with support and resources."  

Bross continued, "This event was dreamed up after the district leadership team met with Special Agent David Alley regarding internet safety for kids and we thought “Our families need to know this!”.  After that, we discussed other information and supports we know our families need and we created this event to help meet those needs. It’s important to have a strong partnership between home and school and we want to do our part to help students and families be safe and be well in all aspects of their lives."

Bonus: The Dec/Jan issue of The Shores Magazine was themed around wellness/mental health and featured an article titled Meet Maisie, Lake Shore High School's therapy dog, on pages 8 and 9.
