Tornado Relief

 

We are all devestated seeing what has happened to our neighbors in the mid-west.  Many want to help. The following message come to us from United Way of Central Oklahoma, who advises that monetary donations are the best way to assist the recovery efforts at this time.

Thank you to the following volunteers:

Middle School - It Happens to Everyone

Today launches the third Middle School Success public awareness campaign by United Way. 

Why raise awareness of middle school?

Have you even been in middle school or junior high school?  Do you remember the awkwardness and confusion of that time?  Do you remember thinking that your parents, teachers or other adults just don’t get it?  The public awareness campaign is intended to remind the adults in this community that we were there once ourselves and that we need to support and encourage youth in our community who are dealing with the middle school years.
