May 2023 Newsletter
There is a lot happening this month.
Read about the events TT is hosting, Mental Health Awareness Month, our coalition meeting, a community Zumba Event, a Communities That Care recap and news from LEAP Youth Alliance.
Dressed to Dream
Dressed to Dream, originally dubbed Diva Day, was started by parents about a decade ago. When Tualatin Together took over, the group changed the name to reflect the events’ gender inclusivity.
About 130 students from five high schools went home with something to wear to PROM.
With the 2022 spring event fading into the rear view, organizers already have their eyes on the fall, winter and spring 2023.
Grateful for Gratitude Pumpkin
Tualatin Together distributed 1,300 pumpkins to the students at the three elementary schools. The pumpkins were part of a 30-day Gratitude Pumpkin Project lesson plan which TT distributed as well. The lessons focused on building resilience skills in the students.
Drug Take Back Day
Responsible Disposal of Prescription Drugs
The DEA National Drug Take Back Day occurs bi-annually in an effort to encourage people to empty their medicine cabinets and discard unused prescriptions that are no longer needed. Tualatin Together partners with the Tualatin Police for Tualatin’s drive through event at the police station.
