April used to be known as Autism Awareness Month, but in 2021 the designation changed to Autism Acceptance Month. The Autism Society of America ignited the change in terminology to support autistic people and their families. “Awareness” is knowing that somebody has autism, “Acceptance” is including autistic individuals in activities and developing a community where they feel connected.  

Throughout the month of April, the Mainland Collegiate Institute students will be sharing facts and hosting events to encourage students and teachers in developing acceptance within our Buccaneer Family.

Kaija Peterson got on base with a leadoff single and Tiera Lopez bunted Carolyn Marquez to second to advance the winning run. Bella Dejulio secured the win with a walkoff double, advancing our overall record to 6-2 on the season. Great job to Mainland Softball! Buc Pride Never Dies! 

Congratulations to Team Elite on their championship win for intramural basketball!

Yesterday was the last day of National Athletic Training Month, an opportunity to spread awareness of the impact athletic trainers (ATs) have on work, life, and sport. Athletic trainers are health care professionals that prevent, diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate injuries for active people in many industries, including sports, military and clinical practice. 

Ms. NaKia Jones, Assistant Athletic Trainer– I never had an athletic trainer in high school or knew anything about the profession. I attended one of the poorest high schools in the city of Chicago and was blessed to continue my academic and athletic career at Delaware State University. My freshman year of college I got hurt while playing volleyball and my first ever interaction with an athletic trainer is one, I will never forget. My athletic trainer and now mentor showed me what caring for others, compassion in patient care, and true dedication was. I was so inspired that I volunteered to work in the sports medicine department and well the rest is history! I love that I am fulfilling my purpose in life, which is always to help others. I appreciate all the patience from the student-athletes, coaches, and the sports medicine team. Being new to Mainland means adapting to the unknown and so far, I am loving every moment!

Ms. Ashley Simpson, Head Athletic Trainer- I chose athletic training as a career because I loved sports and being on the sideline in all the action. I also knew I wanted to be in the medical field and change others’ lives. Athletic Training gave me the ability to do both. Since I was a little kid, all I’ve ever known is Mainland High School. I fell in love with athletic training in the same classroom I now teach in. I love being an athletic trainer at Mainland because of the family that is built in this program and school every year. Coming to work isn’t a chore when working at Mainland. It’s coming home. 

The Student Center is closed today.
