FUN STUFF

St. Patrick’s Day scavenger hunt

 Middle School Volition Youth members challenged their peers to complete a St. Patrick’s Day scavenger hunt around school March 11-15.  St. Patrick’s Day-themed shapes were hidden around school. Under the shapes were facts about prescription pills, underage drinking, tobacco, and marijuana.  Students were tasked with finding four different shapes/ facts and writing them out on the green scavenger hunt forms, also placed around school.  Home base teachers were also given directions and forms for students. Once completed, students had the opportunity to turn their completed form in at lunch for a prize.  22 students completed the scavenger hunt.

Gratitude Stones

Studies have found that gratitude is a powerful substance abuse prevention technique. In a study where three groups of people had to write (1) something they were thankful for (2) anything that came to mind or (3) something that was bothering them every day for a period of time, the group who wrote something positive had less anxiety and depression. In November, youth created gratitude stones to share with their peers. They wrote positive messages on rocks and left them in the school office for people to take what they needed.
