MLHS Focus Day 2023 


On Wednesday, MLHS hosted our annual Focus Day. The day got going with 30-minute class periods, followed by a longer combined lunch. After lunch all students and teachers gathered together in the gym for the keynote presentation about "Resilience" presented by Karen Fischer, M.S. ED., LPC, BC-TMH of Christian Family Solutions. Our students were presented with important mental health issues, and the reminder that our strength comes from our Savior. Following the presentation, students gathered in their homerooms for follow-up discussions based on what they learned about in the presentation. Many of the homerooms participated in a Kahoot, trivia style game, based on resilience. To close the day everyone gathered together again in the gym to close the day with the focus of Jesus and the peace that only he offers in their hearts. 

It was an excellent day, we are very thankful to our guest Karen Fischer for presenting to our students. If anyone is looking for more information regarding Christian Family Solutions, and the services they offer, not only to our students here at MLHS, but also to any families who may be in need check out their website: www.christianfamilysolutions.org/
