Red Ribbon Week (2017)
Monday October 23rd through Friday October 27th

Chelsea Intermediate School

Monday: October 23rd: “Your Future is Key so Stay Drug Free”
Students will sign a red paper key during lunch today to make a pledge to stay drug free. The keys will be displayed at Chelsea for all to see!

Tuesday: October 24th : “From Head to Toe, I’m Healthy”
Crazy Hair and Sock Day- wear your craziest socks and make your hair look crazy!

Drug Facts: Red Ribbon Week is a week dedicated to educating children/teens about the dangers of drug use. Red Ribbon Week was started as a way to support our local police departments in their fight against drugs. A drug is defined as any substance that affects our mind and body.

Wednesday: October 25th : “Your Choices are the Key to Your Dreams”
Pajama Day- wear your favorite PJ’s.

Drug Facts: People who are your age, like your classmates, are called peers. When they try to influence how you act, to get you to do something, it's called peer pressure. It is tough to be the only one who says "no" to peer pressure, but you can do it. Paying attention to your own feelings and beliefs about what is right and wrong can help you know the right thing to do.

Thursday October 26th : “Team Up and Be Healthy”
Sports Day- Wear your favorite team shirt or jersey.

Drug Facts: Children/Teenage bodies are still growing and alcohol has a greater impact on young people’s physical and mental well-being than on older people. Illegal drugs can damage the brain, heart, and other important organs

Friday October 27th : “Red Ribbon Day”
Red Day-Wear the color red.

Drug Facts: Drugs and alcohol can limit a person's ability to make good choices. People addicted to drugs or alcohol may say things that they don't really mean and do things that they normally wouldn't do.

We are so excited to begin using Microsoft OneNote in our ELA classes! OneNote allows students to access and edit their ELA work from their online ELA binder. Today, your child will be bringing home their log in information on colored paper. Please keep this copy AT HOME for your use. You can also access this information on my teacher page found on the District website. If you have any additional questions, please let me know!
Dear Parents/Guardians,
This week students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by FastBridge Learning. FastBridge is District 157-C’s new screening instrument that will take the place of AIMSweb. Similarly to AIMSweb, this assessment will be provided in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals and which students may require intervention. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math. The district will be providing training to all teachers on score interpretation. More information will be forthcoming to parents. I look forward to working with your child this school year.
