ANNOUNCEMENTS:

GJHS Student to Participate in Survey

     Students at Greensburg Jr. High School will be asked to participate in the Indiana Prevention Resource Center’s survey on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) use among Indiana’s children and adolescents.  The survey will be given on February 2nd and 3rd 2015.

     Data from the ATOD survey helps meet requirements for the Drug Free Communities Grant awarded to Decatur County and administered by the Community Action Coalition. Dollars received from the Drug Free Grant are used to fund various programs to deter substance abuse among youth in Decatur County. Survey statistics help track the impact that programs are having on substance abuse in Greensburg and Decatur County. In addition, our results are compared with the results from other schools in Indiana and across the nation. The information alerts us to levels of use and trends in substance abuse. This allows our community to focus on specific areas of need.

     The ATOD survey is entirely voluntary, and is administered under strict guidelines that make it completely confidential.  The 2015 survey will provided to our student on-line and uploaded directly to the Indiana Prevention Resource Center data processing center.  The students will take the survey during their Health/PE classes.

     Any parent/guardian who does not want his/her student to participate should submit a written statement indicating that preference to Assistant Principal Deb Smith by Friday, January 30th  at 3:00pm.

ATTENTION ALL PE STUDENTS:  You will need your laptops for class on Monday. Do not forget to bring your laptop!!!!
