What's going on this week!

It is Red Ribbon Week! Thanks to Coach Gober and all the members of SADD at Russellville Middle School for supporting this campaign. This is a great opportunity to discuss with your students about the importance of making good decisions and how those decisions can impact their future. Please encourage your students to participate in the fun dress-up days this week!

As part of our "Kindness Revolution" campaign, we are going to have a Mix-It-Up Lunch Day on Tuesday. This will be a day where students will sit with different students during lunch. This will provide students with the opportunity to talk to other students they don't normally talk to. We will ask students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new during lunch. Although it may sound simple, it can have profound implications. As students interact with students that are different than themselves, it can break down the barriers and biases, and can help reduce misperceptions.

We would like your help that day by asking you to eat in the cafeteria with the students to assist us with supervision and conversation. Since students will be sitting at random tables, just pick a table and sit with students and enjoy having a conversation with a student you may not even know. As role models, we can help pave the way for students to embrace this opportunity to get to know and respect other students.

Thanks so much for your help!
