PSA: Halloween Safety

Halloween season is in full swing! With Halloween coming up, here at The Nest, we find it necessary to remind you of the possible dangers of Halloween.

Keeping your children safe on Halloween should be a priority! Make sure your children are safe from danger. Ensure your children are traveling in groups – not alone. If you are not walking with your child, make sure they have a way to communicate with you, such as by phone.

If you are walking in a dark area, make sure you have something to light your way, such as a flashlight. Also, make sure your child doesn’t enter a stranger’s home.

One of the most important things to do this Halloween is check your children’s candy. Candy and other treats can be easily tampered with. A major sign is rewrapped candy. If you find anything dangerous about your Halloween Candy, contact the local authorities.  Read more

Red Ribbon Week !


Hey boys and girls, do you know what this week is ? You guessed right; it’s red ribbon week! StuCo has came up with some wonderful ideas for us to show our spirit this week against drug abuse etc. For instance, Tuesday is mustache day. Wear everything AND anything mustache! Wednesday is CrAzY hat/hair day. So dig out your wackiest hat from your closet or show us your worst bed head! Thursday is probably going to be a easy day to doze off-because it’s pajama day! Probably the easiest day to participate in, considering you could just roll out of bed and make your way to school. Last yet definitely not least is nerd day! So dig up your suspenders, roll your pants high, and put on some big ole’ specs to contribute to our last day of red ribbon week! Stay Drug Free Owls!(:
