Healthy Choices

In October and throughout the school year, students are strongly encouraged to make healthy choices  - not only in social skills and academics, but also in learning the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Understanding the best ways to combat peer pressure is crucial for your student to be healthy. Below are a few resources for students and parents who are interested in learning about making good choices:

Another way you can support your student to make healthy choices is by being vigilant about their internet activity. In RS each Monday, we teach a quick tip for making good choices online - We call this Social Media Monday (#smm). If you would like to utilize some of the resources we use, please check out:
