This past week has come and gone faster than jambalaya over white rice. We had an Ice Cream event at Altha School (more on that below), as well as some effective planning for our upcoming bystander training. We’re hoping we can make it a great couple of weeks before closing out the month with Spring Break!
Last Friday we held an Ice Cream social during lunch at Altha Public school. The event was focused around staying proactive, as well as serving as great face to face time with the students. We hope we were able to spark some wonderful conversations by thinking about how you can get involved when the need arises. The ice cream event also was a good opportunity to have some fun before we get back to doing our regular work at Altha School. Just next week we’ll be doing our bystander training and we can’t be more excited to share our message with you! If you’re dying to get an invite, a great way to ensure that you can come is to ask Mrs. Treva in the front office.
One great thing about violence prevention is that it can be lots of fun! As the end of the school year approaches, schedules and events are coming through the door. On top of planning our usual events, we’re almost always excited to attend community events as well! So if you have any great ideas, make sure share them with either Tyler or Vicki, and we’ll be more than happy to help you bring your thoughts into reality.
No matter what amazing Green Dot’s ya’ll are doing at your schools, one thing is for sure! Our actions, no matter how big or small, add up to something great. If you want to make a difference in your school and you don’t know how, maybe start small. Sitting with someone new at lunch, or asking someone who appears down how their day is going is a great place to start. Who knows, you might even make a new friend!
Your choices, actions, and behaviors have a bigger impact than you know. Sometimes just being yourself and carrying an open heart can make all the difference in the world. So go out there and make it happen. After all, tomorrow starts today!
