⭐️ Students of the Week ⭐️
🔷 Counselor’s Corner 🔷
This week is Red Ribbon week across the nation and Holden Middle Schoolers will be learning and celebrating with lessons and activities that are centered around the dangers of drug use and prevention of drug use. Students will be engaging in lessons ranging from peer pressure, ways to say no to drugs when pressured to experiment, myths around vaping and e-cigarettes safety, and even a simulation of how difficult it is to breath with COPD.
The counseling office has put together lots of great lessons, videos, and activities to deliver vital information but also have some fun along the way. Kids and staff are all encouraged to participate in the dress up days listed below! The more that participate, the more fun the days are!!
