    Monday, October 27 – Friday, October 31

    Red Ribbon Week is a week when schools across the country celebrate making healthy choices, including choosing not to use drugs or alcohol.  Classroom guidance lessons are presented at each grade level that focus on age-appropriate topics and age-appropriate discussions.  Topics are as follows:

    •        Kindergarten – “Friendship – Friends help each other.” (There will be no discussion of drugs or alcohol, but rather a focus on helping each other make good choices as friends at school.)

    •        First Grade – “Friendship – Be a friend to make a friend.” (There will be no planned discussion of drugs or alcohol, but rather discussions about positive things we can do to form and build friendships.  The concept of “positive peer pressure” will be introduced, discussing with students that we don’t want to follow negative examples, but do want to set and follow positive examples for each other.)

    •        Second Grade – “Vandalism/respect for property” (There will be no planned discussion of drugs or alcohol, but rather a discussion of taking care of our own property and the property of others as a way of respecting ourselves and others.)

    •        Third Grade – “Bullying/Positive Peer Pressure” (There will be no planned discussion of drugs and alcohol, but rather a focus on bullying and the concept of peer pressure.  We will discuss negative peer pressure as a part of bullying, and forms of “positive peer pressure” that help students.)

    •        Fourth Grade – “Smoking” (Information will be presented regarding the unhealthy effects of cigarettes and other forms of tobacco on the body.  Students will engage in fun yet thought-provoking activities that illustrate the harmful effects of smoking on the lungs and other parts of the body.)

    •        Fifth Grade – “Introduction to dangers of alcohol and drugs” (Students will learn about and discuss the harmful effects of alcohol on the body, as well as the dangers of drunk driving.  Students will also be given an introduction to the fact that people sometimes use drugs not prescribed to them and the dangers in taking anything you are unsure of and that may be unhealthy for you. We will also discuss some of the factors that influence people to use tobacco, alcohol or other drugs.)

     Please contact Doug Stech, Woodmont’s guidance counselor, at douglas.stech@montville.net with any questions you may have regarding the week’s activities.  We appreciate your support of our efforts to encourage our students to make the healthiest choices they can!
