On January 17th, a 7-12 grade, school assembly was held with motivational speaker, Ed Gerety. Mr. Gerety spoke to the youth about the importance of having grattitude and how we should value others. He also spoke about standing up for yourself by making good choices such as staying alcohol and drug free, and how we should "dream big" with our lives. One of the ways to help dream big is to make a visual representation of your dreams also known as a "dream board".
(On January 22 & 27th, youth in grades 7-12 will have the chance to make a dream board.)
