Does your child want to run a booth? It is a great way to learn about business in a safe and controlled environment. Who knows, maybe you have an entrepreneur in your family!! Here are the guidelines. Talk to your students.

  • Students in grades 2-5 can run booths. First graders can do it with an older sibling.
  • No liquids of any kind may be sold. Food items will be in the lunchroom and non-food items will be in the gym.
  • Students will use the LIME tickets as money.
  • Students who want to sponsor a booth must fill out a business license application and pay Jan 10 LIME tickets FOR EACH STUDENT who is running the booth. Applications will be available in the office starting December 1.
  • When students hand in their business license application and LIME tickets, they’ll be given a large piece of white paper. This is for a poster to advertise their booth. This is the ONLY paper than can use to advertise. They can display their poster in the hall starting on December 9th.

Red Ribbon Week Coming Up
October 25th – 28th

The National Red Ribbon Week Campaign was started in 1985 by the National Family Partnership (NFP). NFP is a national leader in drug prevention education and advocacy. Red Ribbon Week was created to educate today’s youth about the destructive nature of drug’s and alcohol. All week our North Elementary PTA will be leading the Red Ribbon Week activities in our school. Our children have the right to grow up drug free. Each of us has the responsibility to help make that happen.

Did you know that the #1 reason kids do not smoke or use drugs is fear of disappointing their parents. Parents are the most influential person in their child’s lives. Here are 7 ways parents can protect their children from alcohol and other drugs:

      Talk Often With Your Kids


      Be Clear About Your Expectations


      Be a Role Model


      Be Involved in Your Kid’s Life


      Establish Rules and Follow Through


      Encourage Your Child to Work Hard in School


    Support Your Child’s Involvement in Outside Activites.

More information will be coming home next week with your student. Please encourage your student to be involved in the Red Ribbon Week activities and to say NO to drugs and alcohol.
