Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week
October 19 – 23
Healthy Mind, Healthy Body, Healthy Me!
You are invited to participate in a week of spirit to celebrate our choice to be healthy and drug free. Please remember to follow the school dress code.

Monday: Love Yourself and Love Others
Wear red to help kickoff Red Ribbon Week
*Did you know healthy relationships are important to our health? Show love for yourself and others! Do a secret act of kindness for someone today.

Tuesday: Let’s Get Moving For a Healthy Body
Wear your favorite sports shirt or jersey
*Did you know we need exercise and food to have a healthy body? Go screen free today and play outside instead!

Wednesday: We Are Too Smart To Do Drugs
Wear your favorite college shirt
*You know all the healthy and positive ways you can keep yourself healthy, let’s say NO to all those negative ways! Make a list of five positive things you are going to do everyday to be healthy.

Thursday: Our School Chooses To Be Drug Free!
Wear your school shirt or school colors
*Remember that RadKids know that they don’t have the right to hurt themselves, that if someone offers them drugs/alcohol/cigarettes that they should say “no” and tell a trusted adult. See if you can remember the three things that all RadKids know and recite it to your family!

Sack Breakfast and Lunches

SACK MEALS:  Please be advised that for no-school days, such as Fall Recess on Oct. 15-16, our schools will NOT be sending sack meals home with students. The free take-home meals will be sent home only on those Thursdays that precede independent-learning Fridays.  

Second Step

For the next two weeks, (this week is short due to Fall Break), our Second Step Social/Emotional lessons will center on being assertive.  Being assertive involves using an assertive posture when we interact with others, (facing the other person, head up, shoulders back, calm/firm voice, respectful words).  Communicating assertively is the best way to ask others for help.  Assertiveness will help you be successful in a variety of social and academic situations.

If you would like to learn more about Second Step, or engage in some of the home activities with your child, we would encourage you to create a family account,  by going to  www.secondstep.org and entering an activation code.  Activation codes are as follows:

Kindergarten: SSPK FAMI LY70

First Grade: SSP1 FAMI LY71

Second Grade: SSP2 FAMI LY72

Third Grade: SSP3 FAMI LY73

Fourth Grade: SSP4 FAMI LY74

Fifth Grade: SSP5 FAMI LY75

If you have any other questions about Second Step, or would like to talk to the School Counselor for any other reason, please contact Mary Lynne Richardson at marylynne.richardson@canyonsdistrict.org.
