SHS Daily Announcements 02/12/20   Red Day

 

February is Black History Month. In its honor, the Civil Rights team will be showing The Hate U Give on the agora staircase on Thursday, February 13th, at 2:30. The Hate U Give is a powerful film telling the story of a young girl dealing with racism, police brutality, and activism. We would love to see you there! 

Not doing anything on Valentine's Day? Go on a blind date with a book. Mrs. Raymond and SLAM members have chosen some of their favorite books, wrapped them up, and are ready for you to take a chance on them.  Come check them out in the library!

Note from your nurse: "I KNOW YOU ARE ALL WONDERING...HOW CAN I PREVENT ILLNESSES IN MY SCHOOL? Avoid close contact: When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick as well!  Stay home when you are sick: You will help prevent others from catching your illness.  Cover your mouth and nose: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when coughing or sneezing. The inside of your elbow should be right up to your face. Hold it there with your other hand if you need to. Then wash your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer.  Wash your hands: Washing your hands will help protect you from germs. THIS IS PREVENTION NUMERO UNO!!! IF YOU DO NOTHING ELSE - WASH YO' HANDS!! They're filthy!  Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth: Our hands carry lots of germs which can enter our bodies if we touch our eyes, nose or mouth. (I'm saying it ONE.MORE.TIME for the people in the back!)  Practice other good health habits: Drink at LEAST 64oz of water a day, get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, and eat nutritious food."
