What is S.O.S?
Support Our Schools is an after school group run by Becky Muotka (Ms. Becky). The goal of this group is drug and alcohol prevention. Students that participate in this group work to develop projects, activities and public service announcements around drug and alcohol prevention. Students also have the opportunity to do lobbying for local ordinances around tobacco and tobacco related products. Two of the big activities they plan are Red Ribbon Week and Kick Butts Day. Red Ribbon Week rapped up Oct. 30th. It was a huge success. S.O.S. members helped lead activities and facilitate lesson plans in advisories. They also met with Maplewood city council member Bob Cardinal, and received a Red Ribbon Week Proclamation. Ramsey County Victoria Reinhardt stopped by for a visit.
We just completed a Public Service Announcement about how much Tobacco Companies spend on marketing and selling their products. The video will be available for viewing on the John Glenn news page after the winter break.
