This week PLE celebrated Red Ribbon Week, a national campaign for drug prevention. Students benefitted from a special presentation by Kim Hart, Health Promotions Coordinator of Pearl River County about the dangers of tobacco use and participated in themed dress up days. While students enjoyed celebrating at school, as a parent you have a strong influence in the life of your child. Here are some things you can do to help prevent alcohol, tobacco and drug use:
· Talk early. Talk often. Keep talking. Listen when kids talk.
· Look for teachable moments, such as while driving in the car.
· Spend time with your kids.
· Be clear about boundaries and consequences.
· Help them plan how to resist peer pressure before it comes.
· Be a parent, not a friend. Your kids have plenty of friends. They only have you as a parent.
· Be a role model.
· Show your support. Encourage their interest. Help them to learn from mistakes and move on.
Let them know you care. Show it.

The Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade students from Poplarville Lower Elementary attended the play Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day presented by the PRCC theater department in the Brownstone Center. The play was about a young boy who was having one of those days everyone dreads. From waking up with gum in his hair, to the dentist finding a cavity, to finding out his best friend wasn’t his best friend anymore, poor Alexander was really having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. All the students had a fantastic time!

The MDOT came to visit Poplarville Lower Elementary students. The students learned about seatbelt safety. They also got to see the “Buckle Family” go for a simulated ride. As the truck flipped over and over, the students observed what would happen to a person if they weren’t wearing their seatbelt. They also got to observe what would happen to them if they were wearing their seatbelt. The students were encouraged to always wear their seatbelt and tell their parents to always wear theirs too!

The Poplarville Fire Department came to PLE to speak to the children about fire safety. What the children should do in case of a fire was discussed. The importance of fire drills at home, similar to the way we practice at school, will prepare them for any emergencies that may occur. The students learned about dialing 911 in case of an emergency. They learned why it isn’t a good idea to call 911 if it isn’t an emergency. The students saw the uniforms the firemen wear and the equipment on the fire truck. Then each student was given a glow stick bracelet with “Poplarville Fire Dept.” on it.

Mississippi's First Lady, Mrs. Deborah Bryant, visited Poplarville Lower Elementary School as part of her "Read Across Mississippi Tour" to promote reading. Her husband's personal struggles with reading at an early age inspired her to reach out to children. Her goal is to visit at least one school in every county in the state by the end of the year.
She started with an introduction about the Governor, his job, his family, and the Governor’s mansion. She had large photographs that just amazed the students. Then, she read The Little Red Hen. After reading the book, she had a discussion with the students about how her husband overcame his learning disability and went on to become governor. She encouraged every child to pursue his or her own dreams, and it starts with reading. After letting the students tell what they wanted to be when they grow up, Mrs. Bryant hugged every one of the students. She was very nice and the students will never forget her visit. We were honored to have her read to us!
