News and Announcements

Safe School Ambassadors Usher In Red Ribbon Week

· This year there were 42 SSA members from THS and MHS that visited our three elementary schools.
· The SSA students talked to over 650 students in the 4th and 5th grade classes about being good citizens and the harmful effects of bullying.
· The “Stand Up To Bullying” activity book and other prizes were handed out to another 100 children at the “Fall Festival” event at Monroe High School last Saturday.
· We will be at the Trunk-Or-Treat event downtown this Halloween and we have more “Be a Hero Not a Bully” prizes to give out to the community.

The students from Tehachapi High and Monroe High worked very hard to practice their presentations….also, they did learn it’s not so easy to keep 60 eyeballs on you at all times.

This event is very inspiring for our SSA students to give back to our district and provide guidance to our youngest peers.

ALL of the SSA students were very happy to participate in this 2nd annual event and we hope to continue this tradition.
