Red Ribbon Week
Another reminder: Red Ribbon Week is a nation-wide initiative celebrating a drug-free and healthy lifestyle. Barclay will be participating during the week of October 19-23rd. A different theme each day of that week will allow students to show-case how they respect themselves by being drug-free. Stay tuned for more details! Please see below for the daily themes. Kids enjoy getting into the spirit of this event!
Monday 10/19: Wear red
Tuesday 10/20: Wear mis-matched socks to show that you “stand up to drugs.”
Wednesday 10/21: Wear a hat for “put a cap on drugs.”
Thursday 10/22: Wear a sports team jersey to show that you lead a healthy life.
Friday 10/23: Wear your Barclay t-shirt to show your pride in being drug-free.
Barclay provides social skills education in all classrooms, K-6th, through the 2nd STEP curriculum. Lessons are taught by classroom teachers on a bi-weekly basis to address skills such as listening, empathy, how to handle emotions and problem solving. This program is designed to support the whole child and reinforce skills children will use throughout their lives. 2nd STEP will begin the week of October 12th and run through the first week of June. If you have any questions, please contact Alison Embow, Student Support Counselor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
