Aggie Weekly-October 12th

Aggie Weekly

Good Afternoon Students, Parents, and Community Members:

This week we started off assembly with recognizing student achievement during the FFA Big E events. It is always great to hear about the accomplishments of our students. Our Vo-Ags are working extra hard this week to ensure their are ready for our annual Fall Show starting on Friday. All students will report to assembly on Monday where we will discuss our Fall Show Week schedule. See full Fall Show Student Showcase Schedule below!

Homecoming Dance - Friday November 2nd
Homecoming is Friday, November 2nd from 6pm-10pm in the gymnasium. Students in all grades are welcome. Tickets are $10 if purchased in advance or $15 at the door. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. It is a semi-formal dance and the theme is autumn (not Halloween).

Tickets will go on sale the week after Fall Show. If a student would like to bring a guest from outside of the school, you must submit a guest permission form to the office by Wednesday, October 31st. Email Mrs. Savage (esavage@bcahs.com) with any questions or concerns.

Attention PARENTS:
We have scheduled Ms. Vital to be at Bristol Aggie during Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday, November 15th from 6:00-8:00. The setup will be similar to last year, with the “Hidden in Plain Sight,” demonstration that was set up for parents to walk through. More details, will be available as we get closer to the event. Ms. Vital asked that we pass along the newsletter from their office below.

Dear Parents & Caregivers,
Are you curious or worried about vaping?

This summer the Massachusetts Department of Public Health launched a statewide information campaign called The New Look of Nicotine Addiction and it’s all about vaping. The website of the campaign, GetOutraged.org, is a resource to help parents of teenagers better understand what vaping is, how vaping can harm their teens developing brains and to provide ideas for how parents can talk with their children about vaping and JUULing.

Youth are being targeted by the vaping and tobacco industries. Unfortunately, their tactics are working with 1 in 5 high school youth in MA reporting that they use e-cigarettes. How? Vape “juices” come in thousands of different flavors, such as Swedish Fish, s'mores, and mango. Sweet flavors attract young people and are the leading reason that youth are vaping.

But these products are NOT harmless; they contain nicotine and other harmful chemicals. E-cigarettes produce an aerosol, NOT water vapor. The aerosol can contain cancer-causing chemicals, ultrafine particles, and heavy metals like nickel, tin, and lead.
Nicotine is highly addictive and can damage a young person’s developing brain. Nicotine exposure can lead to mood disorders and can permanently lower impulse control. Teens can get addicted more easily than adults and nicotine can prime the adolescent brain for addiction to other drugs.

For more information about vaping, please visit GetOutraged.org. There you can see what vaping products look like, get more answers to frequently asked questions, and learn more about how to talk with your kids about vaping. There is also a toolkit of useful resources for schools and community-based organizations.

Talk with your kids about vaping and make sure they know it’s harmful. Contact your Tobacco--Free Community Partner, Morissa Vital, at 774-634-3955 or mvital@sevenhills.org to learn more about resources in your community.
