CENTER CONSOLIDATED SCHOOLS
MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL NEWSLETTER
From Middle School Principal Mr. Murillo
I want to make this my formal invitation to our Parent/Teacher conferences being held on Wednesday, February 15th from 3:30-7:30. We will set in the main gym once again. We found this process to have been more convenient for parents as well as it expedited the conferences. We will be conducting home visits on Thursday, February 16th. We hope that you will open your homes and welcome our staff just like you have welcomed me. We believe that you guys play a very important role in the educational process of your children. We also like to not only give feedback but we are really eager to hear any suggestions you may have as to how we can educate your child. You are the first teachers at home and we believe you may have some suggestions for us. Again, I want to encourage you show up and team up with us to provide your students the best education possible. I look forward to seeing you again or personally meeting you if I have not had the pleasure to do so.
FROM THE NURSE
February is National Dental Health Month!
Center School District will be bringing in a registered dental hygienist to conduct dental screening and provide a fluoride varnish for 6th grade at no cost to you! A permission slip will be sent home, please fill it out and return it to the school ASAP. This is a wonderful opportunity!
Other things to remember about teeth…
· Brush your teeth at least twice a day at home
· Floss your teeth everyday
· Visit a dentist regularly for a routine check-up and cleaning
· Change your tooth brush often, especially after an illness
Lifelong habits begin at home so please make dental health a part of your daily routine!
A few other reminders…
The 5th grade class will be learning about puberty in health class on February 6th. Permission slips have been sent home. Please fill these out and send them back. You can contact myself or Mr. Dressler if you have any questions.
If your child has asthma, please have your doctor send an asthma care plan to the school. I cannot treat your child’s asthma, even if he or she has an inhaler at school, without a doctor’s order.
If your child needs any medication at school I need a doctor’s order for this. The prescription label on the medication is not enough. Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if I can help with anything. I am happy to answer any questions or help in any way that I can. My office number is (719) 754-2865 or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a happy and healthy month,
Wendy Rue, RN

THE PROTECT WHAT’S NEXT CHALLENGE
COMING TO YOUR SCHOOL THIS FEBRUARY!
WHAT I S THE CHALLENGE?
The Protect What’s Next Challenge is part of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's (CDPHE's) Protect What’s Next youth retail marijuana prevention campaign. The Challenge is a fun and easy way for Colorado middle schools to engage students with a positive message about prioritizing personal goals over retail marijuana use. Every Colorado middle school serving only sixth to ninth grade students is eligible to participate – and every participating school has a chance to win one of four $10,000 prizes!
Here’s how the program works:
· Throughout the month of February 2017, schools compete by completing the most student challenges. Schools with the highest percentage of student participation (based on their enrollment) have a chance to win $10,000!
· Students participate by completing fun, unique challenges found on Challenge Cards that are handed out at school, or by discovering additional challenges at PWNchallenge.com. There are more than 150 challenges available.
· To submit a completed challenge, students post a photo or video of themselves accomplishing a challenge to Instagram (including #PWNCHALLENGE and their school's unique hashtag in their post) or by uploading their photo/video to PWNchallenge.com.
PLEASE NOTE: If posting to Instagram, the account must be set to public in order for the post to be seen and to count toward your school's total. Students who are not on Instagram, or who wish to keep their account private, may submit their posts at PWNchallenge.com.
· Students who complete challenges have the opportunity to win individual prizes ($10 gift cards) from their school.
WHAT IS PROTECT WHAT'S NEXT?
Protect What’s Next is a youth empowerment and retail marijuana prevention program from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The program is built on youth’s belief that using retail marijuana before age 21 could get in the way of achieving their goals.
At ProtectWhatsNext.com, youth can use the Goal Getter, an interactive tool that helps them identify and accomplish personal goals. The site also educates on the health effects and consequences of using retail marijuana before age 21.
Parents, teachers, coaches, counselors and other influential adults in the lives of youth are encouraged to visit GoodToKnowColorado.com/talk for tips and tools to help start effective conversations with youth about retail marijuana.
