October 2014 

As part of drug-awareness month, Linda Losquadro, Student Assistance Counselor at Washingtonville Middle School, conducted an acrostic poem writing contest for seventh and eighth grade students during the early part of October. Two winners per team were chosen, with seven teams participating in the activity.

During Red Ribbon Week, the winners went to Little Britain Elementary School to do a project with School Counselor, Geralyn Vertoske’s, fourth grade Just Say No Club. The students developed a criterion, and worked collaboratively to evaluate posters and essays written by the Elementary Students. In small groups, the Middle School Students also lead discussions about the dangers of drug use with the Elementary Students.
