Health Smart Campaign

According to a study over the span of six years, those who drank at least five glasses of water per day were 41 percent less likely to suffer from a heart attack than those who drank two glasses or less each day.

Words of Wisdom
Imagine what it would be like if everyone cheated their way through school. Here’s the deal with cheating. If you cheat once and you don’t get caught, it’s a lot easier to cheat again. Sooner or later you’ll get caught. Then you’re in trouble, and not just with others, but with yourself because when you cheat, the person you cheat the most is yourself.
Sophocles wrote: “I would prefer even to fail with honor than to win by cheating.” Unfortunately, surveys indicate that cheating is a big problem in our schools. The attitude that cheating is okay could bring natural consequences that could damage your future.
With something to think about, make it a great day. The choice is yours.
