AHS to celebrate ‘Hunt for Happiness’

Not everyone realizes that the saddest day of the year is in January even though many of us feel it.
However, Andalusia High School Peer helpers are aware of this sad anniversary and want to help fewer AHS students feel it!
In a campaign against sadness, they decided to implement a Hunt For Happiness week.
The week will include giving out candy during first block classes to help everyone have a “super sweet” day.
Students will have an opportunity to vote for teachers who exhibit the greatest degree of happiness in various ways, and they have an actual hunt throughout the school.
Peer Helpers will hide stuffed animals and small bags of goodies across the campus in hopes that the students who find them will have their day “stuffed with happiness.”
There will also be a bulletin board put up in the hallway to spread a little sunshine and share happy moments.
“This is suicide prevention awareness month, and we hope to help everyone realize there are better times ahead than these gray days of January! Even the little things in life can make us happy. Hopefully some of these activities will help students focus on the more positive aspects of life,” says Ali Brown, AHS Peer Helpers secretary.
