Just sharing a few things we did at CMCS lately.
In April, we watched a YouTube video of a young man (Tony Crescio from WI) who had an accident as a result of drunk driving & killed his best friend.Â If the kids brought someone along to watch, they got a reward.Â The young man refers to his Christian faith throughout the whole video and it’s called “Tony’s Story” and was posted by “thatyouthpastordude”.Â He was sentenced to 2 1/2 yrs initial confinement, 7 1/2 years extended, 5 yr license revoked, must go to school/work full-time after prison & must continue to reach out to community.
This past week we had a focus on distracted driving/seatbelt use at our school.Â Before school on Tuesday, two SWAT kids, myself and Superintendent Pete Van Der PuyÂ watched kids (9-12) pull into the parking lot to see who was/wasn’t wearing their seatbelts either as a passenger or driver.Â Anyone who was “caught” wearing their seatbelt was given a card for a free download of one song provided by the Safe Community Coaltion and Stephanie Felt – SCC Coordinator.Â That afternoon, Trooper Kathy Pederson from Springfield, MN came and played the video “Forever Young” and did a rollover demonstration.Â Both were very powerful.Â We also hung a poster in the lunchroom for kids to sign pledging not to drive distracted.

Last October, in honor of Red Ribbon Week, most of the SWAT Teams were able to plant red tulips!Â We were all hoping that they would come up in April, in honor of “April is Alcohol Awareness Month” but they are just coming up now.Â This picture was taken on April 27, 2011.
This next picture was taken on May 11, 2011.
