Would you wear a watch and slippers made from carbon dioxide emissions? Or brush your teeth using toothpaste made from CO₂? Before the pandemic, students at Evergreen Middle School were learning about real products that capture and store carbon dioxide that would otherwise go into the atmosphere.
My health, my future: Self-guided behavioral health screening and intervention for middle school students
Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is committed to the well-being of each and every one of its students. The student experience at our schools provides an opportunity to highlight the strengths of all our children in this community. School also provides an excellent opportunity to proactively support students in building skills to promote positive behavioral health and prevent substance abuse issues.
That’s why LWSD is teaming up with several reputable local partners to implement a screening and intervention system at the middle school level.
