Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

     I recently watched the movie Snow White while babysitting for a friend’s daughter so she could get out.  The last time I had seen the movie was many years ago when I watched it with my kids.  As I have witnessed many times in the past couple of decades, the message of Positive Self Talk was loud and clear. 

     When the evil queen asked, “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest one of all?” The mirror’s reply, “Snow White” made the evil Queen furious. You see, it wasn’t enough for the Queen that she was beautiful.  Instead, the Queen chose to see that she wasn’t enough. There was someone more beautiful than she.

Police Adventure Camp!

 

The 4th Police Adventure Camp at Viers Mill Elementary School focused on teaching incoming 4th, 5th, and 6th graders skills like decision making, how to refuse drugs and alcohol, and resisting peer pressure. 

"It started out with 30 at-risk youth. They came in, we talked about making good decisions: resisting drugs, alcohol and gangs and gave them skills to be better students," said Officer Amy Daum.

The camp is a partnership between Montgomery County Police Department, Montgomery County Public Schools and Linkages to Learning. The Linkages to Learning Program assists students and their families with services to help children be successful in school, at home, and in the community.
