March 2015 DMS NEWS
Notice to parents with students in our ESE program: A letter
will be sent home with your student with a notice regarding the
McKay Scholarship for Students with Disabilities Program,
commonly known as the McKay Scholarship. The ESE Department
is required to verify our compliance with Florida Statutes with the
distribution of this letter by April 1st.
News from our S.A.V.E. Chapter for the week of March 23rd - March 27th: National Youth Crime
Prevention Week and our SAVE chapter has several things planned for fun and awareness.
Information will be given to each teacher to display for the students as we will give tips daily
via announcements on controlling our anger and resolving problems peacefully, along with
sharing information and statistics. Monday and Wednesday we will have toilet talks... that will
include displaying information in the bathrooms most used, and in the locker rooms, hopefully
to spark conversations that could lead someone to helping someone in need. The week will
also have some themed days: Monday will be superhero crime fighter day (end crime one step at a time),
Tuesday is tie-dye Tuesday (like the colors, let's unite), and Thursday is Thankful Thursday
(encouraging everyone to thank anyone that has helped them). Wednesday we will pass out
Smarties during lunch with a violence free message attached.
Also on March 20th, five S.A.V.E. members and two advisors set off to Raleigh, NC to the
Annual SAVE Summit!
