On Nov. 29, NEED NUMBER Addison Trail students who identify as female participated in a day of support and connection.

The event was called S.H.E. Day, which stands for Support one another, Honor each other and Evolve together. This year’s theme was “Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty! You’re Still Allowed to Dream,” which focused on reconnecting students with their core values, beliefs and dreams.

Participants engaged in interactive activities that provided visual demonstrations of how to avoid letting distractions pull you away from your aspirations. They also had an opportunity to ask questions and discuss a variety of topics with a “blue table” panel of District 88 and Addison Trail administrators and staff members. They shared thoughts about relationships and respect, offered advice with regard to finding your life path and more. The goal was to help pupils rediscover their personal power and purpose.

S.H.E. Day was coordinated by Addison Trail Student Success Coordinator VaLarie Humphrey, and the plan is to host similar events throughout the school year.
