Parents, Students, and Friends –
Welcome to Term 2 and good job completing the first term! Thank you to all of the students who work very hard to complete coursework and master their content. Thanks to all of the teachers who put in hours upon hours of preparation time, teaching time, re-teaching and intervention time so students are proficient and ready for the next level of instruction. And, a huge thank you to parents and guardians who support their children and support our school! Way to Strengthen the Pack!
RED RIBBON WEEK
DID YOU KNOW children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don't, yet only a quarter of teens report having these conversations. This is Red Ribbon Week at SFJH, an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States. The 2017 theme is, “Your future is key, so stay drug free.” We will have themed days throughout the week along with information and lessons on how to stay drug free.
Monday: Wear Red Day – Pledge to be drug free.
Tuesday: Halloween Costumes – Scare away drugs.
Make sure the costume is school appropriate, no face paint, weapons, masks, or hats/hoods that cover the face. Also, some classes are sharing candy during class. If candy is brought to school, make sure it is purchased at the store and individually wrapped. We have many students who have peanut/nut allergies in the school. Please consider this when purchasing any candy your child may bring. Thank you.
Wednesday: Hat Day – Hats off to good choices.
Thursday: Pajama Day – Follow your dreams, say no to drugs! School appropriate pajamas only.
Friday: Team Jersey/Shirt Day.
Our Netsmartz assembly is scheduled for this Wednesday, November 1st. From the website, “NetSmartz Workshop is an interactive, educational program of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) that provides age-appropriate resources to help teach children how to be safer on- and offline.” For more information, check out the website at https://www.netsmartz.org/Home where you will find many resources, tips, and discussion starters to talk with your children about internet safety.
