Daily Announcement – Monday, February 19, 2018

Good Morning, the Students Against Destructive Decisions Club invites you to join in celebrating Red Ribbon Week. This annual awareness campaign was developed after the death of undercover Drug Enforcement Agent, Enrique Camerena, and other law enforcement who lost their lives in the work against illegal drugs. Red Ribbon Week is designed to promote the belief that one person can make a difference in this fight and to reinforce the positive decision many of you have made to remain drug and alcohol free. Together, we can have a larger impact in and around our community. Join in the celebration as we promote the theme of “Making Good Decisions”. On each day of this week, we will have a different theme that we will focus on and promote.  Today, listen for statistics that will be shared over the loud speaker during lunch shifts on drinking & driving and alcohol.
Did you know that on average, alcohol plays a role in the deaths of 4,358 young people under age 21 every year?  1,580 of those deaths are from car crashes.
 
Winter formal tickets and t-shirts will be handed out today during all lunch periods.  After school, any leftover shirts will be sold, first come first serve.  Cost is $13.
 
This Wednesday, we will have club picture day. You must wear your dress uniform in order to have your picture taken with your club.
 
We are now selling auction t-shirts that you can purchase for $12 and wear every Monday leading up to Auction week. Please purchase your t-shirt before this Wednesday.
 
Good luck to the girls basketball team as they take on Ursuline tonight in New Orleans for the 2nd round of playoffs!
