5th Grade Growth and Development Night / Evento de crescimento e desenvolvimento para alunos do 5º ano
Dear Fifth Grade Parents and Guardians,
On Tuesday, June 5th at 6:00 pm, we will host our annual fifth grade Growth and Development Night (also known as "Puberty Night") for students and parents/guardians. Each student should have a parent or an adult relative or friend accompany them. The evening will be led by Erika Mulvey, Doug Brush and Mike Magaraci. Students may attend either a male video in Mr. Brush's room or a female video in Ms. Gremaux's room. Following the video there will be time for questions and answers and a discussion to provide further education regarding physical and social emotional developments during adolescence.
Below are the links to the videos if you would like to preview it yourself or with your child. We hear from many parents and students that this night is very valuable and creates an opportunity to have discussions about the many changes happening during this important time in growing up. Please contact Ms. Mulvey, Mr. Brush or Coach Magaraci if you have any questions.

Queridos pais dos 7º e 8º anos:
Como parte de nosso programa de educação em saúde e compromisso contínuo com a prevenção e o bem-estar, as Escolas Públicas de Martha's Vineyard convidaram especialistas em prevenção das Obras de Prevenção do FCD para apresentar oficinas de estudantes para todas as escolas secundárias da ilha. Os especialistas do FCD visitarão as nossas turmas de 7ª e 8ª séries na quarta-feira 5/30 e quinta-feira 5/31.O FCD faz parte da Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, uma organização sem fins lucrativos que oferece educação sobre prevenção de abuso de substâncias para escolas em todo o mundo. O foco do programa é:
• Incentivar e apoiar o não uso de álcool e outras drogas ilegais ou ilícitas durante os anos de crescimento.
• Capacitar os jovens para fazer escolhas saudáveis e responsáveis em relação ao uso de álcool e outras drogas
• Ensine os alunos e adultos a reconhecer os primeiros sinais de alerta de abuso de substâncias e a intervir apropriadamente
• Educar estudantes, pais, professores e administradores sobre os efeitos fisiológicos e psicológicos do álcool e outras drogas
• Promover a conscientização da dependência de drogas, incluindo o alcoolismo, como uma doença progressiva, crônica e muitas vezes fatal
Os especialistas em prevenção de FCD são profissionais treinados que conseguiram se recuperar em longo prazo do vício em álcool ou outras drogas. Essa perspectiva única aumenta a credibilidade de sua mensagem e fornece aos alunos modelos para uma vida feliz, saudável e livre de drogas. Os especialistas em prevenção do FCD também apresentarão um workshop para pais na quarta-feira, 5/30, às 18 horas, na biblioteca do MVRHS. Este workshop oferecerá orientação e discussão sobre como ajudar seus filhos a terem uma adolescência livre de drogas. Alguns dos tópicos do workshop para pais a serem discutidos incluem:
• Formas eficazes de se comunicar com seu filho sobre drogas e uso de drogas
• Fatos atualizados sobre o uso atual de drogas e tendências
• O que dizer sobre suas próprias experiências com experiências com álcool e / ou drogas
• Como identificar sinais de alerta precoces de problemas e formas eficazes de responder.
Este programa apresenta uma grande oportunidade para discutir álcool e outras questões relacionadas a drogas com seus filhos. O envolvimento dos pais é crucial em nossos esforços para reduzir os riscos que os adolescentes enfrentam. Queremos que nossos alunos ouçam da escola e da casa que estamos preocupados com o uso de álcool, tabaco e outras drogas por adolescentes, e que estamos comprometidos em ajudá-los a fazer escolhas saudáveis.
Se você tiver alguma dúvida, não hesite em entrar em contato comigo.

Anyone know of 8th graders looking for summer activities? Suzie Scordino is running an agricultural immersion program this summer for rising 9th graders where we'll be growing, harvesting, and cooking food! It's 6 weeks over the summer, M-F, 9am-2pm, it's free, they get community service hours and college ap/resume building skills. They can sign up for as many weeks as they want on the application. I'm really excited about it, but we need more sign ups - the application is really short :D.
