This poster, created by Sawyer Phillips in Mrs. Crowley's 8th grade advisory, came in first place in the recent Red Ribbon Week poster contest at Cyrus Peirce School.  Congratulations to all of the students at CPS who participated and especially to Sawyer! 

 

One of the highlights of the recent Red Ribbon Week community celebration was the screening of "The Hungry Heart" for more than 500 students, parents and community members.  The movie is a documentary that takes an intimate look at the often hidden world of prescription drug addiction through the world of Vermont Pediatrician Fred Holmes who works with patients struggling with this disease.  To find out more information, go to http://thehungryheartmovie.org/multimedia/watch/
