September 15-October 15 has been designated as National Hispanic Heritage Month. There are twenty countries in the western hemisphere that are predominantly Spanish speaking. Ten of our states were originally settled and owned by Spain and/or Mexico (after its independence from Spain). Approximately 16% of the U.S. population has Hispanic cultural roots and 13% of the U.S. population speaks Spanish as a first language. Daily announcements will include the impact that Hispanic culture has had on America in the way of famous businessman, politicians, scientists, and entertainers. Announcements will also include cultural influences as well, including identifying types of foods, dances, music, and holidays that Hispanic culture has introduced to the United States.
The week of October 1st was our annual Week of Respect. We had various activities and theme days going on to reinforce our School Safety and Climate Team’s theme of being respectful to self and others.
The week of October 22nd is Red Ribbon Week. This week is designed to promote healthy choices and to be drug free. The PTA has arranged a clothing theme each day and there will also be various assemblies and activities. These include police coming into classrooms to discuss the dangers of not following doctors’ and parents directions in regards to medication and drugs, Jack Elsmore presenting to the 3rd grade about tobacco, the Morris County Sheriff’s K-9 unit presenting to the 4th grade, and the 5th grade tying ribbons to pledge to make good choices. During this week, the JTPD will also discuss Halloween safety with our students.
On October 11th we will have an assembly for Fire Prevention Month. The fire department will discuss how to help prevent fires, what to do in case of a fire in the home, and will also show the students some of the equipment used to fight fires.

Stanlick School celebrated Red Ribbon Week!
The third grade attended an assembly by Jack Elsmore to teach them about the bad effects of cigarettes. All grades received Halloween safety tips from Officer Hale. Following this, the fourth grade learned about drug, alcohol, and tobacco use by playing Family Feud with Officer Hale and Officer Davis. The fifth grade watched a program by the Morris County Sheriff's Office K-9 unit. Sheriff Officers Carbon and VanValen along with their partners Willie and Django visited. After this presentation, the fifth graders released environmentally friendly balloons with their pledges to remain drug free. Mrs. Wilsusen from the Jefferson Township Municipal Alliance recited the pledge for the students before they released them. Stanlick thanks the PTA for arranging all of these events. We also thank Mrs. Wilsusen, Mr. Elsmore, Jefferson Police Officers Hale and Davis, Sheriff Officers Carbone and VanValen, and especially Sherrif Officers Willie and Django.
