The Weekly Jr. Oiler

Giving Back to our Community
After the presentations, it was off to work! Students spent over an hour combing the beach for any and all trash. At the end of the clean-up they debriefed about how much of that debris was from tobacco products. Students in our TUPE Club will bring back this information to share with students on campus to raise awareness.
We had approximately 55 students participate from Dwyer and they collected around 400 cigarette butts (which are illegal on the beach)! We are very proud of our Jr. Oilers for giving back to the community.
Upcoming Lock Down Drill
On Monday, December 4, we will be conducting a lock down drill. Teachers will be discussing the drill with students and will be showing a training video teaching Run, Hide, Fight, which is recommended by the Department of Homeland Security and HBPD. Scenarios and discussion may also take place in classrooms following the drill.
We want to make sure you are aware that students are being trained through repeated rehearsal and to give you a chance to discuss with your child if you choose. Please note that visitors will not be permitted into the building during the drill. If you happen to call or visit during this time, you will be asked to wait until our drill is complete.
We hope that we never have to actually use any of these procedures, however, our goal is that everyone is prepared should the need arise. If you have any questions regarding this drill or about Run, Hide, Fight, please feel free to contact administration.
