Angle Corner:

We have some exciting things that have been happening at our school this week.  We are currently celebrating Red Ribbon Week!  Do you know where this week originated from?  It was in response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction cause by drugs in America. In 1988, NFP sponsored the first National Red Ribbon Celebration. Here at MJMS to celebrate Red Ribbon Week  we hosted a guest speaker through the science classes on Monday from the DEA. He  talked to our students about the dangers of what drugs can do, types of drugs, and about being drug free.  All students were encouraged to sign a pledge to be drug free.  We have attached the pledge, so you can see and discuss this with your child.  On Tuesday, we had an announcement about vaping and the dangers of doing this.  Please talk with your child about this and how harmful it can be to their bodies.  Wednesday was Red day where we asked everyone in the building to wear red to show their support to be drug free.  We also made an announcement about prescription drugs.  Thursday was Jersey day where we are “Teaming up against drugs”.  A morning announcement was made about the affects that marijuana can have on your body.  On Friday it is Black and Gold Day because MJMS chooses to be Drug FREE!  We will have an announcement about life choices, goals, and and our future!!

Over fall break we challenged our students to see how many Achieve 3000’s they could complete.  We had several that rose to the challenge.  The following our the winners by grade with the number of activities they completed.
