THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Earning freedom is important to most young people. Actually, it’s an important part of becoming a successful adult. It means you’ve taken charge in your life and have the freedom to make responsible decisions about how you will live and the person you will be. Sadly, many young people in their attempt to earn more freedom, actually trap themselves in a place with no freedom at all. They start experimenting with drugs and alcohol, and soon they are caught up in an addiction that has complete control over them. And listen up. That’s when they really lose their freedom. The addiction takes complete control of their lives. So here’s a little secret : The secret of happiness is freedom. The secret of freedom is courage. Have the courage to say no even if your peers are pressuring you to use drugs or alcohol. Don’t risk an addiction that could take over your life and rob you of your freedom. Choose what is right for you. You deserve the freedom and happiness that will come with making the right choice

LUNCH: Do you bring your lunch from home? If you do, you can add a fruit, veggie and milk for free!!!  That’s right! You can jazz up your lunch in the cafeteria with a fruit, veggie and milk for free if you bring your lunch from home. Bon  appetit!!

SAFE: It’s SAFE to Tell. The SAFE Team exists to help students with problems in a confidential manner to help remove any and all barriers to education. You can refer your friends or yourself. It’s now safer and easier to tell: just fill out the SAFE to Tell form which you can find ONLINE in your guidance counselor’s resources folder. Don’t  worry, “It’s Safe To Tell.” Thanks for being AWESOME!
