The Unsung Hero
The K-8 students and staff will take a moment to remember a day of tragedy and of unification of people around those who stood as heroes on September 11, 2001.  We have heard it asked many times, “Where are all the heroes today?”  We often consider the acts of people that occur randomly, and in the moment, to be our indicators as to whether a person is heroic or not.  In this, I would not disagree, but I believe we can look more superficially to find those heroes as well.  We may find that there are more heroic acts than we would let ourselves acknowledge.  To us September 11, 2001 was one event that brought this truth to light for our community and country as a whole, yet it seems that, that was a distant memory.  Spotting heroes can simply be a matter of looking beyond our own preconceived notions of what a hero could be.

Know! The Key Skills for Your Child's Academic Success
As teens begin a new school year, we have the opportunity to help them start strong and stay on track toward academic success. We all know the importance of academic achievement in shaping the minds of our children, giving them a competitive edge to further their education and to better prepare them for future careers. In addition, research shows there are health benefits as well—as young people who achieve higher grades in the classroom also don’t use drugs.

Know! The New Marketplace for Buying and Selling
 
It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon in June, and we were celebrating our eight-year-old son’s birthday at our neighborhood park with 20 of his closest friends and a handful of parents. The adults, myself included, were busy watching the children launch water balloons at each other when one of the dads noticed something happening right in the middle of it all. 

A young man, about 17-years-old, pulled into the playground parking lot, and two boys,12 and 13-years-old, approached his car. The dad, who was with our party, recognized the two boys from the neighborhood and began watching closely. He felt like something wasn’t right, so he walked up to the car as well. After some resistance and much talk, the truth came out that this older teenager had come to sell these two younger boys a vaping device.

Know! To Fuel Their Critical Thinking
Have you ever received an unsolicited, direct-to-consumer advertisement via email, text, or social media? Of course you have! They somehow seem to find all of us, even if we’re not looking for them. The same holds true for our young people. Just like us, they are bombarded with advertising – mainly on their phones and laptops; from YouTube videos to game apps, and the numerous other social media sites. The biggest problem is that many of the ads they receive promote and offer discrete ordering of products that are unhealthy, unsafe and inappropriate for teens and tweens – including the popular push of marijuana products and vaping devices.

Know! Summertime Increases Risk
It’s June – which for most teens means summer break is either close at hand or has already begun! Sure most kids are thrilled, but it’s a big relief for many parents as well. We finally get to catch a break from the daily stress of dragging tired teens out of bed, staying on top of them to get their homework done, and making sure they are prepared for all those quizzes and tests. But you never get to catch a break from parenting, because risky behaviors, including first-time alcohol use and drug experimentation hit their peak in the summer months.

Know! How To Talk To Your Kids About School Violence
Have you checked in with your children regarding the recent school shooting in Florida to see what they’re thinking and how they’re feeling about it? Do you know what to say? It is only natural for us parents to struggle with what to say about this senseless tragedy, along with the additional acts and threats of school violence that have since followed.  While it may not a comfortable topic to discuss with our children, it is a necessary one; and one that will hopefully help to ease some young peoples’ anxiety and fear after witnessing (through news and social media) the horrific events unfold right in front of their eyes, then replayed again and again.

Know! To Talk Teen Relationships and Dating
February is the month of romance, so what better time than now to bring up the subject with your teen? Whether or not your teen has shown interest in dating, it has more than likely crossed their mind. It is vitally important for our daughters and our sons to hear from us on this subject. They need to know what a healthy relationship entails; they need to be clear on the family rules regarding teen romance and dating; and they need to be keenly aware that no means no, and “love” does not equal sex.

Students Discover their Potential to be Great Leaders
On Monday, February 5, 2018, Greenville Elementary and Middle School students and staff hosted a motivational speaker for the day.  The speaker was brought in to speak to all grade levels about their own personal potential to be great leaders.  Logan Weber was the invited speaker and he had four presentations prepared for the day.  His discussions were divided between the Middle levels called X-Factor and the Elementary levels called David and Goliath.  This was to allow opportunity to focus on their specific area of need.  He spent the remainder of the day meeting with students in the cafeteria and in the classrooms.

Know! To Foster Empathy for Bullying Prevention
In the previous tip, Know! The End of Bullying Begins With YOU, we learned that in 2016, more than one in five students reported being bullied, and that regardless of what position a child is in - a target, bully, or bystander – they are at increased risk for a variety of mental health and behavioral problems, including substance abuse.
 
In addition to positive role modeling and conversations specifically telling our children, “It is never ok to hurt, harm, or humiliate another person with your words or behavior,” we can further help prevent bullying by fostering empathy.

Know! – The End of Bullying Begins With YOU
Wondering why we hear so much about bullying? Because there’s way too much of it going on and it’s a huge problem for everyone involved.
 
Students report getting bullied most often because of looks, body shape, race and sexual orientation. While every child is at risk for being the target of bullying, young people with disabilities or special education needs get bullied two to three times more often than their peers. At the same time, children with disabilities are also at an increased risk for bullying others as well.

Know! April is Alcohol Awareness Month
The media has done a good job bringing to light the prevalence and severity of
the use of heroin, prescription drugs and marijuana among our nation’s youth.
But what about alcohol? We don’t hear much about it in the news anymore. Is
underage drinking still that widespread? And c’mon, is it really that big of a deal?
YES and YES.

Alcohol remains the number one drug of choice among youth, and excessive
drinking continues to lead to more than 4,300 adolescent deaths each year.
