Everest Middle School Parents: October is Bullying Prevention Month and Red Ribbon Week is October 23-31, 2021. Throughout the month of October students have been learning about how to recognize bullying and the differences between rude, mean, conflict, and bullying. Students have learned about becoming an upstander and what to do when they find themselves or see someone else in a bullying situation. 5th graders made Bullying Prevention Posters using the theme “Choose Peace.” For Red Ribbon Week EMS Student Council has invited Officer Boller of the Horton Police Department to come talk with students October 29th about alcohol and drug prevention. Students are encouraged to wear red on this day. Students will also be receiving positive behavior bracelets in recognition of Red Ribbon Week. Another Red Ribbon Week activity for students is to learn about Drug Prevention through the evidence- based program Natural High. A link about this program as well as bullying information for parents is included in the links below. Bullying prevention resources https://www.stopbullying.gov/ https://www.pacer.org/bullying/nbpm/ How Parents Can Prevent Drug Abuse Among Youth https://www.naturalhigh.org/for-parents/ Thank you for all that you do, and know that I am always here as a resource!

As you know, college is expensive. But that’s why the federal government sets aside $135 billion (with a B!) each year to give students as college financial aid. In fact, the average student gets about $15,000 in federal and state financial aid. (This is a combination of grants, work-study, and loans.) What does your family have to do to get access to financial aid? Fill out the FAFSA form. This is the #1 most important thing your family can do, to get money for college. During our FAFSA Workshop (Tuesday, Oct. 26th 6:30-7:30) I will work with you and your student to help get the FAFSA completed. In the past, students have sometimes struggled with the government version of the FAFSA. That’s why this year we’ve partnered with Going Merry to offer you their version of the form, known as: “FAFSA Made Easier.” This FAFSA Made Easier form is completely FREE for you to use. This FAFSA Made Easier form replaces the government version. (You do not need to fill it out on the government website, only on Going Merry.) Going Merry has strict security protocols, including encryption of all information and safe storage of your personal data. They do NOT sell your data to third parties. Please bring these forms with you to the workshop and help your student remember to bring their chromebook. 2020 tax forms (1040 Form, W-2, 1099, Schedule 1/2/3 if applicable) Bank Statements and records of investments (if applicable) Student & parent social security numbers. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at smitht@usd430.org Thanks and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow night!
