Month of the Young Adolescent – Join us as we “Ban the Bags”

October is Month of the Young Adolescent. This celebration holds as its key messages:
  • The importance of parents being knowledgeable about young adolescents and being actively involved in their lives;
  • The understanding that healthy bodies plus healthy minds equal healthy young adolescents;
  • The realization that the education young adolescents experience during this formative period of life will, in large measure, determine the future for all citizens; and
  • The knowledge that every young adolescent should have the opportunity to pursue his or her dreams and aspirations, and post-secondary education should be a possibility for all.
This year, our theme is “Ban the Bag,” challenging ourselves and our community to ban the use of plastic bags and to present eco-friendly alternatives. Each grade level will be focusing on this topic in several other ways, beginning with our classroom projects. Mark your calendars now for the Sixth Annual Leadership Summit to be held on Thursday morning, October 30, 8:30am.
