Did you know that underage drinking costs the U.S. more than 58 billion dollars every year, according to www.teendrugabuse.us ? Thankfully, alcohol use among teens remains at historically low levels, according to www.teendrugabuse.gov . Still, in 2013, 2.5% of eighth graders in the U.S. reported getting drunk in the last month.  Let’s “Team up against drugs” by wearing a team shirt or jersey or pants to school tomorrow! Remember that you could win a candy treat bag!

 The student’s who made honor roll will receive an ABBIT card.  This stands for “A’s and B’s Because I Try.”  Your ABBIT card will allow you to go to the commons area on the Wednesday your class has been assigned.  Be sure to HOLD ON to your ABBIT card.  You will only receive one card for the entire school year.  At the end of the grading period, if you make honor roll, you will need to bring your ABBIT card into the office and have it stamped.  The date on the back of your card indicates how long you can continue to go to the commons area.  If you should lose your ABBIT card, you may purchase a new on ONLY at the start of the new 9 weeks for a fee of $2.00.

 Did you know that in a national study, 20% of eighth graders report that they have tried marijuana? Www.drugabuse.gov reports that fewer teens smoke cigarettes than smoke marijuana and that cigarette smoking by teens reached its peak in 1996.  Show your classmates and P.C.J.H. staff that “ Drugs won’t tie me down” by wearing a necktie to school tomorrow.  There are still candy treat bags to be won!

We are at the mid-point of Red Ribbon Week.  Positive trends in the past several years include reduced use of inhalants and less use of cocaine.  However, in 2013, 5.2% of eighth graders in the U.S. reported using inhalants.  That’s still too many young people.  Take a stand against alcohol and other drugs by saying, “Living drug-free is no sweat!” Wear a sweatshirt and/or sweatpants tomorrow, the last dress-up day for Red Ribbon Week.

Death due to drugs and alcohol can easily be prevent, just by saying no.  When you make that choice, you can tell others to say no too.  Drug addiction is a preventable disease.  Get educated, talk to your parents about the dangers of drug and alcohol use, find something else to do.  Even media attention is more focused on the dangers of drugs thanks to parents, community groups, and the government.  Thanks for dressing up each day for Red Ribbon Week!
