Good Morning Ketcham Nation!

Today is Day 5

Today’s Motivation: The strongest people are those who quietly win battles we know nothing about.

May is Mental Health Month. It can be easy to get caught up in your emotions as you’re feeling them. Most people don’t think about what emotions they are dealing with, but taking the time to really identify what you’re feeling can help you to better cope with challenging situations.

Good Morning Ketcham Nation!

Today is Day 3
Message from SADD Club: This week is National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week, and we want to raise awareness on the risks caused by using drugs and alcohol. Did you know... A combination of factors— genes, environment, and many more—helps determine whether using drugs will lead to addiction. For example, a person who has depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues might use drugs to try to feel better. Someone who uses drugs when they’re young has a greater chance of becoming addicted when they’re older than someone who doesn’t use drugs when they’re young. And research suggests that as much as half of a person’s risk of becoming addicted to drugs may depend on their genetic makeup. Read more about the factors that increase the risk of having a problem with drugs: https://archives.drugabuse.gov/blog/post/what-increases-risk-having-drug-problem-part-2.

Good Morning Ketcham Nation!
 
Today is Day 2

Message from SADD Club: This week is National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week. Today’s fact: Did you know... Substance use by teens ages 16 to 18 was linked with significantly less gray matter at age 25 in the left pars opercularis, a part of the brain that is involved in cognitive control. The neurons that make up gray matter are involved in much of what the brain does: muscle control, sensory control (hearing, seeing), speech, memory, and emotions. The pars opercularis is part of the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain responsible for helping you make decisions. The prefrontal cortex isn’t fully mature until well after you graduate from high school! Scientists think this might help explain why teens tend to take more risks than adults, including experimenting with drugs. For support, please reach out to a professional at school or in the community for more information and resources.

Good Morning Ketcham Nation!

Today is Day 5

“There are two kinds of people – those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there.” -Indira Gandhi, the first female prime minister of India.

Message from SADD Club: Today is the first day of  National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week. What is National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week? It is an annual, week-long health observance encouraging conversations about the science of drug use and addiction among youth.
Today’s fact: Did you know… the brain continues to develop into your late 20’s?! Using substances at an earlier age can alter this crucial development, potentially affecting both the brain’s structure and its function, causing cognitive or learning problems later in life.
To find out more, join the SADD Club every other Thursday in Room 214, see Ms. Alden, Student Assistance Counselor, in Room 202, or visit this website https://teens.drugabuse.gov/national-drug-alcohol-facts-week.

“I will not allow my life’s light to be determined by the darkness around me.” Sojourner Truth was an American abolitionist and women's rights activist.

After going to court to recover her son in 1828, she became the first black woman to win such a case against a white man.

Good Morning Ketcham Nation!

Today is Day 6

"In recognizing the humanity of our fellow beings, we pay ourselves the highest tribute." -Thurgood Marshall was the first African American U.S. Supreme Court member.

Today is the final day of National School Counseling Week.  This week we have focused on how we are BETTER TOGETHER at RCK. Whether it was highlighting how our faculty and staff use teamwork to support our students or highlighting how you as a student can self advocate to have a great high school experience, we hope that our message this week has been meaningful to you in some way. Judy Blume once said “Our fingerprints don’t fade from the lives we touch.”  As your School Counselors, we hope each of you feel recognized and supported by us.  We want to remind you to see your counselor with any questions you may have or any help you need to make your time in high school the best it can be. Thank you for celebrating School Counseling Week with us and we hope you have a safe and happy weekend!

Good Morning Ketcham Nation!

Today is Day 5

2 Hour Delay

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the one we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”- Barack Obama

National School Counseling week is going strong and we have really enjoyed highlighting our theme BETTER TOGETHER, in addition to the ways in which a school counselor works to support their students and contribute to a positive school environment. We recognize that every student has different abilities, attributes, interests, goals, and perspectives. Nelson Mandela once said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” We value each and every student we work with and look forward to watching the ways in which you contribute to your communities in the future.  Throughout your time at Ketcham, you will undoubtedly grow and change. We encourage you to always celebrate the things about you that make you who you are and to always reach for the stars!

Good Morning Ketcham Nation!

Today is Day 4

“Let no man pull you low enough to hate him”- Martin Luther King Jr

Today is our third day celebrating National School Counseling week. We continue to work to build upon the theme BETTER TOGETHER. In every cohort there are several people working together, as part of your team, to ensure you are learning and enjoying high school. Being better together means students sharing their voice about what would help make their high school experience the best it can be. Being better together also means celebrating our achievements and supporting each other during difficult times. You, as our students, are the most important part of the team and we ask that you share with us your happy moments, as well as your struggles, so that we can be there to support you throughout your time at RCK.

Good Morning Ketcham Nation!

Today is Day 3

“Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.”  - John Lewis was an American politician and civil rights activist.

Today we continue to celebrate being BETTER TOGETHER during National School Counseling Week. Colin Powell once said “ Never lose sight of the need to reach out and talk to people who don’t share your view. Listen to them and see if you can find a way to compromise.” Today we challenge you to engage with others and expand your knowledge and understanding by listening to someone else’s point of view.  We hope that we make our students feel heard, valued and empowered to achieve success.

BARD COLLEGE PROGRAM
In the 2022-23 school year, we will offer an exciting learning experience to our students going into 11th and 12th grade -The Bard Early College Program. This program is housed at Dutchess BOCES in conjunction with Bard College located in Annandale-on-Hudson. Bard Early College Program provides 11th and 12th-grade students the opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school. The courses are taught by Bard professors and students earn Bard College credits, which are transferable upon admission to not only Bard, but most programs within the SUNY and CUNY systems, and many other private and public colleges around the country. The program is structured so participants attend their high school in the morning and then attend Bard classes in the afternoon. Please make note that it will be difficult if not impossible for students to participate in after school activities if involved in this program, despite what it says in the program description.
There is limited space and a selection process. If you are interested in this program or have any questions, please contact your School Counselor by Friday, January 7th. You will be invited to attend an information session on Monday, January 10th. Please visit https://hudson.bard.edu/  for a description of the Bard Early College Program

The program is structured so participants attend their high school in the morning and then attend Bard classes in the afternoon. Please make note that it will be difficult if not impossible for students to participate in after school activities if involved in this program, despite what it says in the program description.
