Floyd County Sheriff's Office
This month's challenge is simple and will not cost anyone a penny. I simply ask that we reach out and show kindness to those around us, especially at school. We have no way of knowing the situations which are being faced by those around us. As people, teenagers especially, we tend to see a smile on the face of a classmate or friend and think they are happy, never realizing that they are wearing a mask.... masking their own personal pain. Kindness is free and more important it is contagious! So this month, I challenge you to simply be kind to those around you and maybe we can change our schools and communities one kind word or deed at a time!
Students please remember that you have two homework assignments for CHAMPS Class.
First, you need to complete page 43 in your workbooks where you must list reasons NOT to smoke or use other tobacco products. This is a great chance for you to sit down with your parent(s)/Guardian(s) and go over the tobacco factsheet on page 42 and have them assist you with your homework. This page is pictured below.
Second, You are responsible for creating a tobacco product package warning label. You may draw this label in your workbook on page 44 or you can create it on another sheet of paper and attach it to page 44. Think of the examples that we reviewed in class (The slide is pictured under this month's lesson if you can't remember) and then create a package/label that you feel tells the truth about tobacco products. Remember that these are due at the beginning of December's class and we will have a contest where the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be rewarded with two Blow Pop suckers each. I thank you in advance for your participation. (Note: The December Class Schedule is shown above)

Our Children are the future of our communities and our leaders for a brighter tomorrow and we have a responsibility to ensure that they have a strong foundation on which to build. Our children are under attack like never before and it is up to us as adults to educate them regarding real world topics such as the dangers of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, Gang Awareness, Bullying, etc. It is our responsibility to teach our children that every choice has a consequence and that once we take action we must accept all those consequences... both good and bad. The Floyd County Sheriff's Office shares in your desire to help our children become the best they can be and to to ensure this we continue to offer the C.H.A.M.P.S. program to 6th and 7th graders in Floyd County. It is our hope that this program will make a difference in the life of your child and by doing so will make a difference in our community.
