All Central Manor Elementary Students and Staff Members will celebrate Red Ribbon Week (October 26th – 30th). Each student will receive a red ribbon to wear, and each day there will be a different theme. Students are encouraged to dress up in order to show that they are making a promise to be drug-free.
Monday: “Show that you are Drug-Free:” Wear RED day
Tuesday: “Warm up to a Drug-Free life:” Wear SWEATS day
Wednesday: “Pinky Promise to be Drug-Free:” Wear PINK day
(We will also be showing our support for breast cancer awareness month!)
Thursday: “Slip into Good Habits:” Wear SLIPPERS day
Friday: “Team up against Drugs:” Wear your favorite TEAM SHIRT day
You can support Red Ribbon Week by talking to your child about making healthy choices and by teaching him/her to say “NO!” to drugs and alcohol. Discuss alternatives to drug use . . . such as finding a sport or hobby that interests him/her, making good friendship choices, having the courage to be an individual, and by communicating with you when he/she is presented with tough choices.
Together, we can make a difference for life!
Mrs. Danielle L. Rogers
I will be seeing the 1st grade students for 10 lessons this fall to teach friendship skills such as: talking it out rather than fighting, apologizing when you make a mistake, learning how to “cool off” when you are angry, hands are for helping, tattling vs. telling and respecting and celebrating each other’s differences.
We will have fun singing songs, reading books, doing activities, and writing/drawing about our new skills!
Peacemakers Listen to our Peacemaker song that your child sings during our lessons! I will often hear them singing this song in the hallway or at lunch!!!
