    • This week is National Red Ribbon Week. Drug Fact #2: Life Expectancy for cigarette smokers is at least 10 years shorter than for non-cigarette smokers. Nicotine in cigarettes is a stimulant drug. Nicotine is addictive. It is as addictive as cocaine and heroin. If you become addicted, it will be very hard to stop using nicotine. Don't be fooled by e-cigarettes. Vaping is also hazardous to your health. Nicotine in vapes affects your brain, blood pressure, heart and insulin levels. What about vapes without nicotine? There are still chemicals being put into your body and your brain. Why take the risk? By any name - they are all the same - battery operated nicotine and drug delivery devices.

    • This week is National Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week is celebrated because of a brave DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) Agent named Enrique Camarena. Special Agent Camarena was working undercover in Mexico investigating a drug cartel and was captured and tortured to death. Today, Red Ribbon Week is nationally recognized and celebrated, helping to preserve Special Agent Camarena's memory and further the cause for which he gave his life. The Red Ribbon Campaign also became a symbol of support for the DEA's efforts to reduce demand for drugs through prevention and education programs. By wearing a red ribbon during the last week in October, Americans demonstrate their opposition to drugs. They pay homage not only to Specail Agent Camarena, but to all men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in support of our nation's struggle against drug trafficking and abuse. Everyone should receive a red ribbon in homeroom today.

    • Coin Wars: Once again it is time for our annual Coin Wars competition. Coin Wars is a competition between grades and homerooms to see who can bring in the greatest amount of coins to school in one school week. This year's competition will take place from Monday, October 1st to Friday, October 5th. Yes. That's next week! Here's what you need to do to be part of this event. Bring in as many coins as you can and put them in your homeroom's container each morning. Each quarter will be worth 25 points, a dime is worth 10 points and so on. Want to double your points? Every dollar bill donated will be worth 200 points. The homeroom that collects the most points will win a pizza party. The winning hall will have their flag fly out front for the month of October. Sounds great, right? Well, it gets even better. All the money we collect will go to the Mercer County Sunshine Foundation to support Operation Dream Lift.
