The last week of the month is Red Ribbon Week (Drug Awareness Week) here at Gilbert and also throughout the nation. Each day, we will make a school-wide effort to emphasize staying Drug Free.
Monday - "Team Up Against Drugs"
Everyone is encouraged to wear their favorite team jersey/shirt. Students may wear jeans with their jersey. Students will be given a red ribbon to wear for the week.
Tuesday - "Roundup Against Drugs"
Everyone is encouraged to wear western attire and come to school as a cowboy or a cowgirl. Boots, hat, bandanas, jeans and button down shirt.
Wednesday - "I'm Drug Free from Head to Toe"
Everyone is encouraged to wear a cap or crazy hat along with crazy socks.
Thursday - "Follow Your Dreams, Don't Do Drugs"
Everyone is encouraged to wear pajamas.
Friday - "Drug Free for Decades"
Everyone is encouraged to dress in attire to represent their favorite decade (1920's, 1930's, 1940's, etc).
We are having a competition that ends on Friday, October 28!! The grade level with the most Telehealth applications submitted earns a free dress day; there's also an incentive for the class with the highest Telehealth applications submitted.
We’ve partnered with Children’s Health to bring Telehealth to our nurse’s office. Using computers and a video, a school nurse can link your child to a health care provider from Children’s Health without your child leaving school, and without you leaving work. Telehealth providers can assess, diagnose, treat and prescribe medication for your child. And as your student’s guardian, you’ll receive an after-visit summary to make sure you don’t miss any information. Enroll your student today! Applications were sent home with all students on Thursday, October 13 and you can stop by the front office or school nurse to turn in or fill out another enrollment form or for more information.
Also, feel free to click here for more information and a short video on how Telehealth works!
