National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is this Saturday, Oct. 27

The Drug Enforcement Administration will host the semi-annual National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, Oct. 27. The goal of the event is to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

A list of drug collection sites is available, as are additional educational materials such as promotional handouts and safe disposal information.

Jonestown PD at 18304 Park Dr N, Jonestown is open 10-2 tomorrow for your disposal.

Counselor's Corner

Lago Vista ISD’s character trait for the month of November is giving.

November’s guidance lesson will center on charity. We will promote charity as a way to positively impact society.


Here is an excellent article on how to incorporate charity into your family.

https://www.parents.com/parenting/money/donate-to-charity/9-ways-to-teach-your-child-about-charity/


To consider if you choose to give as a family:

*Who are we donating to? *Why do we want to help them? *What type of donation have we chosen (money, goods, and/or time/services)? * How much money do we want to give? * What kinds of items do we want to donate and how many? * What kinds of services would we like to offer and how often? What steps will we take? * When will we take each step? * Who is responsible for each task on the list? * Are there any tasks that can be done at the same time? * Are there any tasks for which we will need adult help or supervision? * What other questions do we need to answer before we can implement your plan?
