Freedom elementary school teachers, staff and students were joined by Webb County officials to send positive messages to individuals who are struggling with mental health issues. The Let's Chalk About Mental Health campaign participants scrawled their messages (in chalk), near the school's entryway. Making the campaign unique to the campus were messages tied in with the school’s bee mascot. Accordingly, messages such as “Bee Courageous” and “Bee Strong” were used in the campaign. Spearheaded by 4th-grade pathfinder Cynthia Aguilar, the ultimate mission of the Let's Chalk About Mental Health campaign is to raise awareness of mental health issues and to encourage students to be kind and understanding of each other. Students may also report acts of unkindness or teasing to their teachers and principal. Freedom Elementary is the first Laredo elementary campus to participate in this awareness event. "Freedom elementary school prioritizes academics, but also encourages students to bee the positive change in their community and bee-come good citizens of their local community," said Principal Laura P. De Los Santos
