News Release from the Department of Health - 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline Launch Marks Washington’s first phase of building understanding, hope and a path forward for those in need. 988 is the new, nationwide, three-digit dialing code for the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. The 988 dialing code connects people via call, text, or chat, to the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL) where compassionate, accessible care and support are available for anyone experiencing mental health-related distress. 988 is the newest addition to the state’s network of crisis center providers and will not replace any crisis call centers in Washington. The current NSPL number, 1-800-273-TALK (8255), will remain active along with the new 988 dialing code. For more information: English - https://5il.co/1eeia Spanish - https://5il.co/1eei9

NEWS RELEASE: LOCAL STUDENT SELECTED FOR INTERNSHIP AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS TO ANALYZE NASA EARTH SCIENCE DATA Hannah Norris, a student from Prosser High School in Prosser, Washington has been selected for the prestigious Student Enhancement in Earth and Space Science (SEES) summer internship to be held at The University of Texas at Austin’s Center for Space Research. Students will work with scientists and engineers to conduct authentic research from data received from NASA’s earth observing satellites as well as designing Mars habitats, Lunar Exploration, and analysis of images from the International Space Station. This nationally competitive program sponsored by NASA’s Texas Space Grant Consortium selects students who will increase their knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and math through earth and space education. SEES is a collaborative effort of Texas Space Grant Consortium members and affiliates, NASA, and The University of Texas at Austin’s Center for Space Research. Students apply for SEES and are selected competitively. The internships are organized around an aerospace or space science theme drawn from NASA’s diverse engineering and scientific research programs. The program combines the strengths of collaborators to enrich teaching and learning of STEM. Almost 1100 applications were received for the coveted 92 on-site internship positions. Students work remotely with their project scientist prior to the on-site internship. During the two weeks the students will work at UT/CSR, they will conduct hands-on activities, field investigations, attend presentations by NASA scientists and engineers, and work on various NASA missions. Earth is a complex, dynamic system we do not yet fully understand. The Earth system, like the human body, comprises diverse components that interact in complex ways. We strive to understand the Earth's atmosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, and biosphere as a single connected system. Our planet is changing on all spatial and temporal scales. The purpose of NASA's Earth science program is to develop a scientific understanding of Earth's system and its response to natural or human-induced changes, and to improve prediction of climate, weather, and natural hazards. Students selected will come together July 16 in Austin, Texas to conduct experiments, tour facilities, network with other students, and conduct research while being mentored by NASA subject matter experts at The University of Texas at Austin. The SEES internship proves that the excitement students feel about space science is a critical step in enriching science, math, engineering, and technology. The internship will provide students the rare – and for most, unique - opportunity to spend two weeks working with professional scientists and engineers at the cutting edge of space exploration. SEES is funded through NASA’s Cooperative Agreement Notice NNH15ZDA004C.

A HUGE thanks to the Prosser Community for the overwhelming support of the Scholastic Book Fair. The record-setting sales were amazing but seeing the smiles on the faces of children and adults alike was the most rewarding. Words cannot express the support you gave the libraries of the Prosser School District. Your patience with the technical glitches was appreciated.
