Today is Tuesday, May 5th, and it is a B -Day!

Happy Cinco de Mayo from Spanish club. Fun fact: Cinco de Mayo IS NOT MEXICAN INDEPENDENCE DAY! In fact, it is the commemoration of la Batalla de Puebla (5 de mayo, 1862). It is celebrated in México, specifically in Puebla. It is also celebrated in California, Texas, Arizona and in other states in the southwest of the USA. It is a day to celebrate Mexican pride and Mexican American or CHICANO culture. Did you know this day is more widely celebrated in the USA than in Mexico??

Mental Health Month raises awareness of trauma and the impact it can have on the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of children, families, and communities. Mental Health Month was established in 1949 to increase awareness of the importance of mental health and wellness in Americans’ lives, and to celebrate recovery from mental illness. Mental health is essential for a person’s overall health. Prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can recover from mental disorders and live full and productive lives.
Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. – JK Rowling
