Superheroes with Park Plains East Local 31 prepare to battle mental illness. The VES (Vermilion Elementary School) Superheroes team (left to right: Jana McLaughlin, Trisha Rawlake, Rebecca McCullough and Hallie Zaharko) participated in an Amazing Teacher Activity Race and wore hats in support of the Alberta Teachers’ Association’s Hats on for Mental Health initiative.

On May 6, teachers from Local 31 promoted positive mental health in a fun and unique way by participating in an Amazing Teacher Activity Race. The day’s activities focused awareness on mental health, local charities and the teaching profession, and fostered camaraderie among teachers with Buffalo Trail Public Schools and East Central Alberta Catholic Schools. See “Class Acts” for more on this story and other teacher achievements, page 5.
