SCHS Newsletter Oct 21, 2018
Dear BOBCAT Nation,
We kick off our Red Ribbon Week activities this week with the aim of encouraging our community to make healthy lifestyle choices.
Activities and events this week, and leading into next week’s Fall Formal Spirit Week, will be focused on discouraging drug and alcohol use: students will sign a pledge to be drug free, hear a guest speaker this Wednesday, view the remains of a car involved in a drunk driver crash, and participate in fun lunchtime activities.
As part of our Red Ribbon Week activities, I also encourage all parents and students to view the highly impactful Every 15 Minutes short film
. This extraordinary production was created by Sage Creek High School students last spring and details the impact that can result when students decide to drink and drive.
