Riverside students explore why they matter


Riverside middle and high school students enjoy the Great Outdoors as part of “13 Reasons Why You Matter Day” on May 12. The name came from sophomore Kayden Smith, who was concerned about the happiness of his fellow classmates and the impact of the popular Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, about a girl’s suicide. The Riverside staff and administration decided to take a day to focus on students’ mental health and well being. Consolidated Care participated in the day and staffed several stations, including self-esteem, mindfulness, and a discussion on 13 Reasons Why. Students went on a nature hike and were reminded of Nature’s healing power. Students and staff ended the day by planting an oak tree in the front lawn as a symbol of strength and community.
