UCHS Prom Season Is Here. Let's Make Sure Everyone is Safe
UCHS SADD club promotes safe driving among teens and adults. We especially want to promote safety on Prom Night! We have taken the AAA PROMise along with thousands of other teens to promise friends, families, and selves to get to our destination safely and not drive impaired or distracted or get in a vehicle with someone under the influence. We want to extend this opportunity to ALL UCH students to take the PROMise and get home safely on Prom night. SADD club will be at lunch Thursday, April 27th for students to sign the banner and get some free stuff. Parents should also know that if they need to pick up their child, they can call AAA at 1-800-AAA-HELP and they will tow the family vehicle back home with no charge, even if they are not a AAA member! AAA, SADD nation, and our SADD students want everyone to have an enjoyable prom night and drive responsibly to protect their lives and the lives of others.
For More information on the UCHS S.A.D.D program. Please Contact Brittany Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you remember the old television show called "Kid's say the Darndest Things?" If not you should look for it on YouTube. It was a great show and a good laugh was always had. The idea works on TV but in real life when things are said that we regret we must ask who pays the price?
To be honest, it can be hysterical to hear a child say something they shouldn’t. A child pointing out a pimple may not bother you, but they can be damaging when said between students. So when you start hearing other students say something that hurts someone else’s feelings, it may be time to stand up and explain “think before you speak.”
One of the trickiest nuances of learning to think before you speak is knowing if a statement is helpful. Even adults have trouble recognizing that just because something is kind or neutral, doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to say.
There is much more to learning than book learning. There are many tasks that are developmental in nature. Just like learning to look both ways before crossing a street, adolescents and teenagers must learn to "think before you speak".
Being kind means being considerate of others feelings, showing them you care. A hurtful statement is one that is mean or hurts someone’s feelings. A statement that is helpful provides assistance, serves to meet a need, or is useful in achieving a goal. Just because something is kind or not hurtful, doesn’t mean it’s helpful or the right thing to say. And just because something’s not helpful, doesn’t make it hurtful.
“Sometimes we say things without thinking them through, and our words may not be appropriate. They may hurt someone’s feelings, or it may not be the right time to talk. Learning to think before we speak is important, not only because you are responsible for the things you say but also you’re responsible if those things you say hurt someone else.
Think about the interactions you have from time to time. Are there times you recognize that it would be better to just think it rather than say it.
Here are some examples: (How would you categorize these)
