Attention RF Sophomore Families. Last year's freshmen had their "Relentless Peer Mentoring" experience cut short due to the pandemic. As a result, A Positive Approach to Teen Health is providing all current sophomores the opportunity to participate in their 10th grade program, "Love Notes", an evidenced-based holistic approach to risk prevention with a focus on positive youth development and healthy relationships. To ensure no instructional time is lost, the program will take place on Tuesdays during SRT from 11:40 AM - 12:40 PM starting next Tuesday, February 9th and continue throughout the remainder of the year. Participation is not mandatory, but we are hopeful the majority of students will take advantage of this offer. Please see the attached Parent Notification Letter from A Positive Approach to Teen Health for additional details. Parents that decide to opt their children out of the program may do so using one of the following online consent forms: For English – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LoveNotesConsent En Espanol – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/consentimientoLoveNotes
