Fall 2007 SHAC Minutes

Members Present: duRae' Bergquist, Janet Heis, Jeanette Holding RN, Angie Duncan, Kim Hollar, Food Services Director, Tommy Bennett, Cindy Dunkerley, Mary Parish, Nicki Holbert, and Georgetta Stanford

Guests: Lisa Davis, Donna Halsell, and Lisa Crenshaw

Jeanette Holding began the meeting by introducing the group and the new members.  She stated that the committee generally meets two times per year.

Cindy Dunkerley spoke about a new program for the 3rd grade students. "Balance Your Day With  Food and Play."  She stated that if the teachers could take care of covering the food part of the program, as the Physical Education teacher, she would take care of the play portion. Forms were provided to be sent home to parents for permission to participate.  Since the program covers information that is already in the curriculum, Mrs. Dunkerley did not feel as though the forms would have to be signed for students to participate.  Some of the items that are to be used in the program are measuring cups, food pyramid, paper plates, and samples of nutritional facts.  Packets were to be distributed to the administrators for final approval.  It is a good program that is being provided to us for free.  It lasts 6 weeks and covers TAKS objectives.  Mrs. Dunkerley plans to meet with the Health teachers from Third Grade to talk more about it.

Nurse Holding spoke about the "Aim for Success" program that was introduced last year to Henrietta ISD.  It covers abstinence, sex, and STDs.  This committee has made great progress getting this correct information to our district.  The program will return December 17, 2007 with the parent meeting at the High School Auditorium. The high school program will be December 18, the first group will be 9th and 10 grades followed by 11th and 12th grades.  That afternoon the program will move to the Junior High with the 6th graders, followed by the 7th and 8th grades together.  This year is part 2 - "Freedom to Succeed: Why Choose Abstinence...It's the Law."  The program costs the district $1254.  David Gordon at Region 9 has grant money that will cover the cost to our district.  Nurse Holding handed out and informational flyer that had a true story testimonial .  Information will be published in the school newsletter as well as the Clay County Leader closer to time for the program.

Kim Hollar was introduced as the new Food Services Director.

Those parents present received a parent questionnaire to be filled out.

The committee found out that the Wellness Policy had received some updates since last year.  There are still some dates that may need to be updated.

A question was brought to the committee about whether the coaches use detergent to clean athletics clothes.  Some were under the impression that they only used hot water.  At the Junior High, the clothes are not allowed to come home; they must remain on campus and are washed on campus.  Nurse Holding will check on the washing of the athletic clothes.  Also, the committee discussed the fact that if a student has an infection that is running they should report it to the coaches and those kids' clothes should go home to be washed.  Nurse Holding thought, and Kim concurred, that the uniforms are washed daily.  Also, the equipment is supposed to be washed daily.

The next meeting will be in the spring.

 

Spring 2008 SHAC Minutes

SHAC: School Health Advisory Council
Monday, April 21, 2008

In attendance:Jeanette Holding, Nurse,Lisa Davis, 3rd Grade Teacher,Janet Heis, Tech Assist. Little Wichita SWCD, Tracie Barry, 6th grade health teacher, du’Rae Bergquist, parent/community,
Kim Hollar, food service director, Angie Duncan, parent, Sherri Halsell, ext. agent, Sheri Hood, parent, Nicki Holbert, HJH counselor, Mary Parrish, HES counselor

Agenda Items

1. Balance Your Day with Food & Play – Sherri Halsell & 3rd Grade teachers.
Lisa Davis and the 3rd Grade Teachers said this was a good program and the kids enjoyed it. They did one block at a time. It didn’t take as long as they expected. Results will come from College Station. It was a free service; there was no charge to the district. Once results come back, we will get a nice pamphlet along with some cute pictures of the kids to share with the district and the board.

2. Do Well, Be Well with Diabetes – Sherri Halsell
Sherri handed a pamphlet out. If anyone is interested, they can be a part of these lessons during May at Clay County Memorial Hospital @ 10:00 in the meeting room. There will be five lessons.

3. Healthy & Wise – Jeanette Holding
We are required to implement one of 3 approved programs. Jeanette Holding, Julia Burlison (6th grade PE teacher), and Tracie Barry (6th grade health teacher) went to Region 9 to preview the 3 approved programs. SHAC is required to approve whatever is picked for the school. Healthy & Wise seems to go along with the current program the best. It coordinates with what we are already doing, rather than introducing a whole new program. Training will be covered by Region 9. Healthy & Wise allows for parents to get online and be involved in the program. du’Rae made the motion to adopt the program. Kim Hollar seconded. The vote was unanimous to adopt the program. This program will be used for 6th grade Health, and can be incorporated into 7th and 8th grade subjects. Cindy Dunkerley is also planning to move to Healthy & Wise to go along with what the Junior High will be doing.

4. Aim for Success – Jeanette Holding
The second Aim for Success program, “Freedom to Succeed”, was presented at Junior High and High School on Dec. 18, 2007. We had positive results. The student survey responses were shared with the campuses. The third Aim for Success program is “Achieve Success”. Aim for Success strongly encourages that if you are going to participate, that you do all three programs. We have requested funding to cover the third program from David Gordon. David requested that if we are funded for the third year of the program that we would track our pregnancy statistics at our campuses for year one, two, and three. Next time for the Aim for Success program, we discussed the need to stress the importance of the parent meeting. It is new information each time and very valuable information for the parents to hear. Kim Hollar made the motion to accept. Angie Duncan seconded. The vote was unanimous to go forward with the third Aim for Success program, “Achieve Success”.

5. Miscellaneous Discussion
At our next meeting, we would like to have someone from each of the campuses that is knowledgeable about the drug testing program, come to give some information about how it works. What shows up in testing, and what doesn’t - especially with prescription and over-the-counter medications. What students participate in drug testing, and who is excluded. Also we would like to have someone from all three campuses go over what drug education is done at each campus.

• Mr. Zamzow and Mr. West presented the drug testing program for Jr. High and High School. The testing is done by an outside company and the students to be tested are randomly selected. The students selected are in extra-curricular activities or drive a car to school and park on school grounds. The program was implemented as a deterrent for students and to help students make healthy choices.
• Drug Education from each campus was presented. High school uses their health and science classes. Serenity Foundation also comes into the Biology Classes for one week to present a program. The Jr. High uses their health class in 6th grade, assembly program, and science classes. The elementary campus teaches character education in Head start – 5th grade, making good choices, and grade appropriate drug education in each classroom.
• Sherri Halsell shared the “Balance Your Day with Food and Play” program that is implemented in 3rd grade. At the next meeting Mrs. Halsell will share the evaluations. This program encourages healthy eating and exercise.
• Mrs. Halsell also talked about the Food Handlers Program which is for all school cafeteria employees. Mrs. Halsell and Mrs. Hollar will coordinate this together.
• Mrs. Holding presented the information for the 3rd program on Aim for Success which is for Jr. High and High School students. Parent night will be Dec. 15 6:00-7:00 p.m. and DEC. 16 will be the program for High School in the morning and Jr. High in the afternoon. Suggestions for how to promote the parent meeting were discussed.
• Health Fair for 4th and 5th grade will be March 13. There will be eight presenters and students will rotate every 15-20 minutes to hear each presentation.
• A wellness program for staff was discussed to give employees information on health issues. Staff members who have the school insurance already receive information from Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Spring 2009 SHAC Minutes

SHAC: School Health Advisory Council
Tuesday, April 21, 2009
In Attendance:
Jeanette Holding, RN - Nurse
duRae Berquist - Parent
Georgetta Stanford – High School Counselor
Angie Forrester - Parent
Cindy Dunkerley – Elementary PE Teacher
Janet Heis - Parent
Todd Davis – Junior High Health/Science Teacher
Nicki Holbert – Junior High Counselor
Sherri Halsell - SHAC Coordinator
Kim Hollar - Food Service Director
Crista Byers - Parent
1. 4th and 5th Grade Health Fair – Sherri Halsell
Great response this year – most said it was “excellent”. The kids really enjoyed the fair, especially stations like the “Zumba” exercise station and the dance station. Sherri did a really neat display using water bottles stacked in a pyramid. The kids were challenged to guess how many gallons the bottles represented. This display represented the amount of coke per year that the average American drinks resulting in 64 lbs of sugar! The 4th and 5th Grade Health Fair is a program that Jeanette does every other year and will be planned again for the year after next.
The 3rd grade teachers participated again this year in the Balancing Food & Play program. It is a program that includes a workbook, activities and 40 hours of lessons. Everything is connected to the TEKS. It also includes before and after evaluations from the students which can be kept on file to document our nutrition compliance in our curriculum.
Sherri is also working with Kim Hollar on Food Handler’s Training. They are looking into places in the community (like local churches) where it could be offered so that we could involve volunteers to be trained that will help run concession stands.
2. Aim for Success – Jeanette Holding
This concluded the 3rd year of the 3 year abstinence program. Jeanette provided the results from the surveys that the students filled out during the programs at the junior high and high school campuses for the committee to review. David Gordon, Region 9 has provided the funds to bring this program to our district for the last 3 years. We are not sure if we will continue to receive funds in the future to bring this program again, or to bring an alternative program. The committee discussed the possibility of the program, “Power to Succeed” which is a program encouraging students to avoid tobacco, alcohol, and drugs. Sherri mentioned that she might be able to use tobacco grant money to pay for this program if it covers enough on the tobacco topic. The committee discussed asking for funding for both programs, “Aim for Success” and “Power to Succeed”.
The SHAC discussed how to promote parent involvement through attendance to the Parent Program offered the night before the presentations at the schools. Some ideas included having the community help sponsor the meeting, for example having the parent program at a church or the community center and having community organizations help with hosting it, possibly students from local youth groups. The committee also suggested a drawing giveaway or some other incentive for the parent and/or student whose parent attends the parent meeting. Other ideas included mass e-mails, personal invitations, or even a phone tree.
3. Staff Wellness – Jeanette Holding
(United Reference Lab Wellness Panel)
The lab (United Reference Lab Wellness Panel) came to HISD on Tuesday, March 24th from 0700-0900 in the HES gym. The cost for the lab work this year was $15.00. The testing included: CBC (WBC count, RBC count, Hgb/Hct and Platelets), Lipid Panels (Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and Triglyceride) and Blood Chemistries ( Glucose, Sodium, Potassium, Carbon dioxide, Liver function tests, and Kidney function tests.) The PSA screening was also available for men for $15.00 (screening for prostate cancer).
United Regional also had a table set up providing information on bone density testing for osteoporosis, breast self exam and mammography with the message of prevention through early detection. Each campus donated $20 plus the PTA provided food for breakfast since the blood tests had to be done after fasting. We had a great turnout this year with 75 participants (staff and spouses). The results indicated 55% abnormal bad cholesterol, 29% abnormal triglycerides, 12% abnormal glucose, and 8% abnormal hemoglobin.
4. Bullying and Self Esteem – Nicki Holbert
The junior high has scheduled David Gordon to come do a program with the 7th graders to promote healthy self esteem and bully awareness/prevention. The campus is looking at scheduling him to come for extended programs for the 7th and 8th graders during the 2009-2010 school year that would deal more extensively with bullying prevention and self esteem.

SHAC: School Health Advisory Council

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

 

 In Attendance:


Jeanette Holding RN, Nicki Holbert, Cindy Dunkerley, Georgetta Stanford, du’Rae Bergquist, Paula Koetter, Shannon Fletcher, Kelly Holcomb, Todd Davis, Kim Hollar FSD, Sheri Hood, and Randy Zamzow

 

 

Jeanette Holding :


Introduction of New Members
Explanation of the SHAC and its purpose.

 

 

Cindy Dunkerley – TETN Meetings:


 

Cindy has been trying to stay on top of student health topics, requirements and new legislation through watching the TETNs. After watching the first TETN, she felt like our district was ahead of the game. The state uses the TETNs as a vehicle to explain to school districts what they are wanting. We are currently working on a needs assessment to meet some of these requirements. Parents/Public access to the school wellness policy that is adopted by the district is posted on the website for public information.  HES and HJH use the Catch program, which is a state adopted PE program.

In January (Jan 3-12) Cindy will do the fitness testing and send the report to Austin.

 

Campus Needs Assessment:


 

One of the new state requirements is that the SHAC must meet 4 times per year. Our next meetings are scheduled for Jan. 20 and Feb. 17. The SHAC report must be ready to present to the school board by the March 11 meeting.  Our goals for our Jan. 20 meeting will be to go over the needs assessment. The Feb. 17 meeting will be used to talk about the report to be presented to the school board and what we have accomplished for the year.  David Gordon is going to get a needs assessment survey together to put on our website. The high school has one online already, so the SHAC is going to wait until later to post the needs assessment survey. Jeanette passed out the survey from David Gordon for the members to review. She had already noted some corrections to be made. There was another suggestion to add “I don’t know” or “unsure” and/or “possibly” as answer choices. Other suggestions included adding drug use including using non-prescribed prescription drugs. The SHAC discussed possibly using Randy Zamzow’s safe and drug free schools survey, or at least see what questions are already covered within that survey. There was also discussion about gearing the questions to give us the kind of answers that will help us figure out what our needs are as a school district.

 

AIM for Success dates:


 

The parent night is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9 from 6-7pm at the HHS Auditorium. At the next meeting, the SHAC will discuss ideas to advertise and promote attendance to this parent meeting. The student program will be on March 10 in the morning at the high school and in the afternoon at the junior high.

 

Other:


 

The SHAC members will take the sample surveys home and review and make corrections and suggestions and bring back to the next meeting to discuss and finalize. Randy Zamzow will bring his survey that he puts on the website to see what information is already being collected that could be used for the needs assessment. Jeanette will also check with Scot Clayton to see if he does any surveys that might have information to help with the SHAC survey needs.

 


 

SHAC Minutes
January 20, 2010

InAttendance:


Todd Davis- HJH health/science teacher, Erin Turner-HHS health teacher, duRae’ Bergquist-parent, Nicki Holbert- HJH Counselor, Sherri Halsell- Community involvement, Kim Hollar- Food Service, Shannon Fletcher-parent, Jeanette Holding- School Nurse

 

 


Erin Turner, HHS Health Teacher:
Erin talked about the PAPA Program, which stands for Parenting and Paternity Awareness.
This is a new program that is required at the high school level that involves annual training. Erin sends an informational letter home at the beginning of the class listing the 12 topics that will be covered.

Jeanette was completing a TEA survey. The question was asked, “What percentage of our high school  campuses gives CPR instruction”. The answer was “All Campuses”.

Human Sexuality instruction is included in junior high and high school health. The parents are notified of the right to opt out of the instruction and to access curriculum upon request.

 


Campus Needs Assessment:
The SHAC is still in the process of looking at options to aid in the development of the Campus Needs Assessment. There are 2 surveys that are currently done in our district through Survey Monkey. The SHAC reviewed these 2 surveys to see how relevant the items would be to use towards the campus needs assessment.
• Mr. Zamzow’s Drug Survey: Jeanette shared a copy of Mr. Zamzow’s Drug Survey. The group reviewed the survey to see how it could be used towards the SHAC’s Campus Needs.
• Mr. Clayton’s Educational Survey: Jeanette also shared a copy of this survey. It included more general educational questions, but not topics dealing with drugs, bullying, or health related topics. Mr. Clayton will have another survey sent out in the spring. We discussed reviewing this survey to see if any parts might include the kind of information the SHAC is looking for.
• Region 18’s survey was discussed to decide if it might include appropriate questions that we could use for our survey. A few members commented that it included language and acronyms that they felt like parents and students would not easily understand. But that it could be used as a starting point.
• The one area that the SHAC felt like we might need assistance in developing and including relevant and meaningful questions in the survey would be the Counseling and Mental Health area. We discussed reviewing the other region’s survey to see if it included relevant questions that we could use.

 

 


Aim for Success Dates & Parent Night:
The Parent night is scheduled for March 9 from 6-7 pm in the Henrietta High School Auditorium. The student program will be on March 10 in the morning at the high school, then in the afternoon at the junior high. To encourage parent attendance at the parent meeting, the idea was suggested to see if the English teachers would give extra credit to students who had a parent or guardian show up at the parent night on their behalf. The suggestion was made to send an informational flyer about the parent meeting home through the English classes explaining how they student could benefit if a parent attended. We also suggested getting a parent email database set up so that a broadcast email could be sent to parents to let them know about the parent meeting.

 


Other:
Jeanette will ask Erik or Kellie to come to the next meeting to talk to the SHAC about begin able to send out the broadcast emails to parents to share important information.

Jeanette thinks that she will have money in her budget to bring in the AIM for Success Drug Program for the Junior High and the High School. We will look at scheduling that parent meeting and student programs in May.

 

SHAC Minutes
February 17, 2010

 

 


In attendance: Georgetta Stanford, Kelly Holcomb, Kellie Harris, Cindy Dunkerley, Sheri Hood. Du’Rae Bergquist, Kim Hollar, Jeanette Holding, Angie Forrester, Todd Davis and Nicki Holbert
 

 


Kellie Harris, HISD Technology:
Kellie came to talk to the committee about the ways to get information to parents using email or cell phone texting. She explained how the district and campus listserv worked, as well as an email distribution list through a program such as Outlook. She recommended that since the district already subscribes to the listserv service through our website, that we use that as the way to send messages to parents. She said at this point sending text alerts to parents cell phones was not an option. The committee discussed ways to promote parents to sign up for the listserv. The following suggestions were made:
• Send information to parents about how to sign up through the elementary newsletter.
• Put a message on the report card.
• Have the sports club send out the information about signing up through their distribution list.
• Have the parents sign up at student registration before school starts either on a workstation, or on a signup sheet that would later be input into the listserv by a campus or HISD employee.
• The counselors at each campus would help coordinate the efforts at their respective campuses to get parents to sign up.

 

 


Annual Report:
The SHAC Annual Report is due April 1, 2010. It will be presented to the school board at the March 11, 2010 school board meeting. Jeanette presented a draft annual report which the SHAC reviewed and finalized. See attached report.

 

 


Planning for Next Year:
At the beginning of the school year next year, Jeanette will send out the dates for the 2010-2011 SHAC meetings. Mark Klyn has agreed to come to first meeting to discuss the possible addition of the counseling and mental health survey questions that could be added to the current district surveys. The SHAC will use the information from Mr. Zamzow’s and Mr. Clayton’s surveys in addition to the possible addition of the mental health questions to assess the district’s needs.

Suggestions for stations for this coming health fair: Oral Hygiene – Kelly Holcombe to coordinate, Dummy Simulator – Sheri Halsell, Care Flight, Sports Nutrition – Sheri Halsell

Abstinence and Drug/Alcohol Programs:
Jeanette has money in her budget to bring back the Aim for Success program to the junior high and high school this year. In the past David Gordon has paid for it through Region 9. Jeanette does not have money for the drug & alcohol program. David Gordon will not be able to fund either program through Region 9 this year. We will look at dates to schedule the Aim for Success program again this year in December or in the spring at junior high and high school. To cover the drug and alcohol program, the junior high and high school will continue to take advantage of the Serenity program since it is free of charge.

Other:
Sheri Halsell shared information about a new Bullying program that they think would be good for our junior high. Nicki Holbert, junior high counselor, was very interested and asked Sheri to keep her updated on when it would be ready. It would include 5 days of 30 minute lessons. Missy Hodgin, the ag agent, is working with Sheri on this new program.

3rd grade is doing “Balance your Day with Food and Play” again in the spring after TAKS. This program provides teachers with workbooks, pretests, posttests, lessons, and homework to do with parents.

Henrietta Elementary School is once again participating in “Walk Across Texas” with Pre K – 5th grades. The program promotes walking over 5000 miles in a year.

Dates of Future SHAC Meetings:
Jeanette will set the dates for next year’s SHAC meetings at the beginning of 2011-2012 school year and send out to the SHAC members.

Region 9 Survey
Jeanette has completed most of the survey with help from each of the campuses about information/programs that she did not know the answers to. The SHAC suggested that for next year’s survey, Jeanette should give each of the principals and counselors a copy of the survey to complete any of the items that have to do with their jobs/responsibilities. The surveys would then be returned to Jeanette to compile the information in the district report.

Health Fair Scheduled March 11, 2011
The Henrietta Elementary Health Fair is scheduled for March 11. Kelly Holcomb will coordinate the dental hygiene program through MSU. MSU will be sending 2 students to help with the program. Texoma Cycling Center is sending someone for bicycling safety. We also want to ask them if they can include information about skateboard and ripstick safety since these are so popular with the kids. Sherri Halsell will send Jeanette an evaluation to be used with the students at the end of the health fair. Jerry Skelton will be doing a tobacco program. Jenny Holding will be doing Pilates. Sherri Halsell will be doing sports nutrition. The Wildcat Hockey Team will be doing workouts. The American Cancer Society will be doing Sun Safety. The Health Department will be doing Poison Safety. And there will also be Zumba in the gym.

Parent Chairperson
Kelly Holcomb was nominated to be the parent chairperson for the SHAC. She agreed to accept the position. The only stipulation is that if she gets hired by HISD as a teacher, she will no longer be able to serve as the parent chairperson since she will be an employee of the district.

Annual Written Report
The 2010-2011 Annual Written Report is due to the school board by April 1. It will be presented at the March 10 board meeting. The committee reviewed the report and made the following suggestions for changes:
• Removed AIM drug program since there is no funding for the program this year.

 SHAC: School Health Advisory Council
Tuesday, February 28, 2012
6:00 HISD Administration Building

 

SHAC members in attendance: Martha Taylor, Sherri Halsell, Paula Moore, BJ Dunn, Nicki Holbert and Jeanette Holding

Program: Predation, Sex Offender, Social Networking, Bullying, Sexting.

Skee Burkes introduced the speaker, Weldon Floyd.

Floyd presented a student program at the high school at 8:30, and at the junior high at 2:30. Both programs went very well.
Floyd shared some cases of child predation.

Types of child predators:
Collector-how most of them get started. Collecting photos or videos of children under 18.
Traveler - will engage in online chat then arrange for a meeting.
Manufacturer - takes pictures or videos.
Chatter - talk to them online.
The chances of youth under the age of 18 become a victim of sexual predation is 1 out of 3.
Dealings include:
Abduction
Rape/sexual molestation
Forced prostitution/porn production
Slave trading/trafficking
Murder (99.4% end up murdered)
Convicted sexual offenders:
Wichita county - 199
Jack county - 21
Montague county - 53
Wise county - 133
Young county - 51
Clay county - 16
Over 70% of these crimes were with minors.
2009 research shows that adults spend 13 hours a week online, while youth spend 30 hours a week online.
Youth are getting on average only 6 hours of sleep at night.
15 youth are still missing that have been gone for less than a year. 66 have been missing for 5 years.
Congressional lobbyist representing a group of psychiatrist "before you act" want to change "pedophile" to "minor attracted" because of the negative stereotype.

 

Social Networking
Main focus-Facebook, cell phone use
Secondary-MySpace, twitter, etc
Other not mentioned to kids: chat roulette Video chatting with random people - Getting more and perverse.
Family Protection - computers & cell phones Must become "social smart" and "phone smart".
All computers and phones need to be in family room. Wireless is one of the biggest problems we have today.
Tarleton State University had a pornography problem. One dorm had rule that doors had to be open and monitors facing door. They are not the only ones with a problem, but they are one of the only ones doing anything about it.

Be careful about what children watch on tv. Examples were given of sitcoms shown at 7 pm referring to watching porn as if it is normal and ok.
No internet connection in a "private" bedroom.
Do all children really need a smart phone. Think "jitterbug"!!
Make sure Facebook settings are set to "friends only".
The settings need to be saved. Facebook will never change your settings.
Do not allow children to have multiple email accounts or social networking accounts.
Know logins and passwords to all accounts.
In Texas several years ago children had to be missing for 24 hours to be considered missing, now they are considered missing as soon as it is reported. But Facebook by law will not release login info for 24 hours to the police for a missing child. Parents job is to love and protect them.
Know their friends list.
Never meet online first and in-person second. Don't let them be friends with people they don't know.
Also need to go through their cell phone contact list &  have a name/face with each contact.
Have your kids teach you text code.
Establish computer use rules. Including cell phones, iPads, kindles.
... Never divulge personal info or photos.
... Establish what sites are allowed.
... No social networking during homework time.
... Neighborhood computer rules - what's allowed next door.
All these precautions close the door to child predators.

Bullying-when a child is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed.
...direct attacks (one person attacks another) ...by proxy (have someone else do the bullying for you)
Over 18 it is called stalking and harassment.
Bullying in Texas is against the law.
Why?
Revenge, anger, frustration-someone that has probably been bullied.
Laughs entertainment
Jealousy
Social status
Just plain mean
...Coward (bully those you can beat up-makes you a coward)
Teach:
respect
consequences
to take a stand
Education - we must educate our youth to the consequences, whether they participate with, ignore, or report the bully.
As adults we must be able to "call out" a bully who really is nothing more than a "coward". We should call bullies "cowards" because they are bullying others who are smaller or weaker than he/she is. In other words, we consider them a coward because they pick on others that they are confident that they could "whip".
Floyd gave an example of a time during one of his presentations when he called out one of the main school bullies in front of the student body. When one of the teachers ask if he was bullying the bully, he said, "You're darn right I am. They need to know how it feels." As parents, teachers, and concerned adults, it is our responsibility to hold bullies accountable for their behavior and teach our children to band together against bullies.

Sexting -the act of sending sexually explicit messages and/or photographs via computer or other mobile device.
Sexting for those under 18 is a misdemeanor for 1st offense.
2nd offense or pictures of others is a felony. It is child pornography!
Production of child pornography-10years
Distribution of child pornography-15years Possession of child pornography-5years Promotion of child pornography-10years Transporting across state lines-10+years Registered as a sexual offender for life Parents are a registered sex offender too.
Monitor cell phone use
Limit cell phone capabilities
Stay knowledgable
Speak with friends' parents about concerns

Floyd ended with a video illustrating how quickly information about your children can be obtained on the Internet.

Agenda Items:

1. Review end of the year report.

Report was reviewed and accepted unanimously by the committee.

2. Members for next year and chairperson for next school year.

All members present agreed to serve for next year, including Paula Moore as chairperson.

 3. Misc.

This year’s Health fair was a big success. Sherri will make sure that next year she will have a survey without a name field on it to maintain confidentiality. Mrs. Holding cut the top of the survey off this year where the student name field was to ensure student confidentiality.

Sheila has been working on obtaining another scale for the nurse to keep at the junior high. United Regional said they would give us a free used scale when they replace theirs this summer.

Sherri needs to speak with Kendra to see if they want to get an educational kit called Organ Wise that teaches about organ health. It is for K-2 and includes puppets, lessons, games, books, etc… It includes $1500 worth of stuff that HES can get for free if they do 20 hours lessons and the pre and post surveys. Blue Cross Blue Shield will pay for it if she gets approval by the school before May. Sherri has this educational kit in all her other schools.

The meeting was adjourned at 4:30 pm.
 


Fall 2013 Minutes

 

  SHAC Meeting 10/23/2013

The meeting was called to order at 4:15 pm in the Henrietta High School Cafeteria.

In attendance: Sheila Choate, Sherri Halsell, Chrystal Compean, Nicki Holbert, Jeanette Holding

Agenda Items:

1.   Cindy D.- Organ Wise Guys K-5.

Also had Sherri with Ag Office do hand washing program with K-5 students at beginning of the year during PE/Music time.

Bicycle safety training K-5 grade levels completed during PE/Music.

Cindy did the program, Organ Wise Guys, with the kindergarten through fifth graders. It is a puppet program worth $500 provided through the extension agency.

Sherri did a very beneficial and successful training with the students over proper hand washing.

A teacher reported that 2 different students nearly had accidents on the way to school because they were not riding their bikes safely and some of the traffic on East Crafton goes pretty fast. Penny and Cindy showed the videos on bicycle safety to the kids which went over the following topics: rules of the road, signs and helmets. Most students in Henrietta do not wear helmets. Sheila mentioned that she thought either Hotter than Hell or TXDOT had a good bicycle program that the committee thought would be beneficial to our students. It is a program that they do at the health fair at the health department in Wichita Falls. Sheila will try to get a hold of someone to get information about the bicycle program and have them contact Cindy Dunkerley to set up.

2. Aim for Success

Aim for Success is a junior high and high school program promoting abstinence. Jeanette is going to try to bring the program in again this year (if her budget allows). The junior high and high school need to coordinate to plan when would be a good date for the program.

3. Scales

Sheila has found scales that we can have if we need them in our district. She can get the old-fashion slide kind or the electronic kind. Jeanette requested the old-fashion slide kind with the height measuring ability. Jeanette will contact Cindy Dunkerley to see if she would like to have one.

4. Other

No other items.

The meeting was adjourned at 4:50 pm.

 


SHAC Meeting 12/11/2013

 

This meeting was called to order at 4:05 pm in the Henrietta Elementary Conference Room.

In attendance: Jeanette Holding, Misty Edwards, Sheila Choate, B.J. Dunn, Paula Moore, Nicki Holbert, Vicki Yurcho, Cindy Dunkerley

Agenda Items:

1.Fitness Gram

This is a state requirement for 3-12 grades. Students’ physical fitness must be assessed each year and sent in to the state. We use the program called Fitness Gram. Any parent that wants a copy of it has the right to see it. We've done this 2007.

2.Bicycle Safety Program

In the October meeting, the committee talked about the need for a bicycle safety program because of the lack of student's knowledge of bicycle safety. Penny and Cindy did a program with the students as well already. Sheila Choate shared information about a bike safety program. "Bike Safe" is the name of the program. Wichita Falls has purchased the program. Mark Beecham is the city works department head in Wichita Falls. He volunteered to come and do it for free. Sherri also found someone that will donate 100 free helmets. The program goes up through the 8th grade. The can do a 30 min lesson during class, and they also offer a bicycle rodeo, which can be done on a Saturday or a special day. He likes to have law enforcement there during the program. He also likes to invite Patsy Walls with TXDot. They will bring the car dummy to show the older kids. He also likes to invite Transforming Texas – this organization will talk about family fitness and healthy living. They will give away a lot of free stuff. The bicycle program can be put on through school, or after school as a community program. The concern is that the kids that really need it will not come outside of school, so it might be more beneficial for it to be a part of the school day. The committee thought it would be better to do it late in the spring (possibly) after testing when it will be fresh in the students’ minds for the summer.

The guy from the bike shop will also come out and do free bike repairs. Jeanette and Cindy will talk to Kendra about doing the program at the elementary. The junior high would be interested in the classroom program/presentation but probably not the rodeo.

3. Misc.

Meeting was adjourned at 4:45 pm. The next meeting is scheduled for January 29, 2014.

1. Bike safety Recap

  • More kids brought bikes than expected. The kids really liked it. The bike rodeo will be held every other year.
  • 211 students participated.
  • 88 students brought bikes.
  • 75 helmets were available to give away to students. Students that already had a helmet may not have gotten a helmet. Some students said they didn't have a helmet. So we actually have a few extra helmets left over.
  • We ended up doing permission slips at the last minute because it was required by the man doing the rodeo.
  • Had pre / post surveys.
  • Had 4 stations which worked out well.
  • Kids wanted to talk more about head injuries at that station but the girls that were there presenting were very shy. So the suggestion was made to get kids from high school that are willing to talk to the kids about head safety/protection.
  • Suggestion was also made to park bikes by grade level.
  • Another suggestion to have the kids move bikes out by the tennis courts closer to the time for their grade levels rodeo so there is not so much time wasted moving the bike at the time of the program.
  • Need extra people in the morning helping get bikes checked in.
  • Get helmets ready before the rodeo. Loosen straps and get the visor ready.
  • Need some large helmets (90% medium 10% large).
  • We also could have used a couple more volunteers at the obstacle course.
  • Maybe consider ideas to accommodate if bus kids want to bring a bike.
  • Make sure that volunteers are on the approved list to volunteer.

  1. Bicycle Rodeo – Mrs. Bennett does want to go ahead and plan this for the spring. Last year 211 students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. 88 kids brought bikes to school. We gave away 76 (some already had helmets). This year we have 197 students in 3-5 grades. Jeanette
  1. Mark Beachum was contact person for the rodeo. Other stations included: Pedestrian Crossing, Clay County EMTs, Rollover Car, and McGruff,

Suggestions for this year:

  • Park bikes by grade level.
  • Color code bikes with name.
  • Bring bikes closer to rodeo.
  • After rodeo have kids take the bikes back to playground.
  • Get helmets ready before the rodeo.
  • Need at least 2 more volunteers for fitting and obstacle course.
  • Order 90% more large
    • Ideas for bus kids to be able to participate. – The will need to make arrangements to get  bikes to school.
    • Get volunteers and need to be pre-approved.
    • Volunteers need to plan for sun exposure.
    • Need more high school students to talk about concussions, or at least check on the timing of it to make sure it coincides with the station times.
    • For this year the estimated times will be 4th grade 12:00 – 1:00, 5th grade 1:00-2:00, 3rd grade 2:00 – 3:00
    • Also this year the suggestion was made to get permission slip home early and brought back a few days before so that teachers can have the list of students participating.
    • The other not from last year was to bring extension cords.
  1. Misc.  Sherri did the clean hands program with the elementary already. Sherri said she may not be able to make a lot of the meetings this year because of other conflicts but she will come when she can and would like to be kept up to date with SHAC information.

On. Nov 19 from 6-8., Sherri is helping host a Healthy Dinner Tonight Program. She hung up posters in the teacher’s lounge today to promote. It will cost $15 a head of time or $20 at the door. Only the first 50 people to sign up will be able to attend because of room for seating. Sherri will also be sending out something that she is starting after Christmas to help track healthy eating habits.

SHAC Meeting 12-2-2015

 

In Attendance: Chrystal Compean, Kim Hollar, Sheila Catron, Vicki Yurcho, Nicki Holbert, Paula Moore

Bicycle Rodeo – Proposed date set for Friday, April 22. Sheila will contact Mark Beachum, the transit director from the city of Wichita Falls. Also ask Sherry about the helmets being donated again this year. The committee also recommended bringing snacks and water for volunteers. Also possibly provide sunscreen for workers as well.

  • Ideas for bus kids to participate: Volunteers could bring “learner bikes” for students without bikes to use.
  • Another suggestion was to bring the activities in together close so kids don’t have to walk so far from activity to activity.

Aim for Success – Proposed dates: Thursday Jan. 28 for parent preview meeting (from 5:30 – 6:30) and Friday Jan. 29 for the program or Thursday, Feb 25 for parent preview, Feb 26 for program

Wellness Policy – Jeanette has forwarded the information to Scot to ask for more guidance. Kim will look over the policy as well before the next SHAC meeting on Jan. 13.



SHAC Meeting 1-13-16

 

 

SHAC Meeting 1/13/2016 4:00 pm HES Lounge                             

In Attendance: Jeanette Holding, Cherise Talley, Kim Hollar, Julie Murphy, Sherri Halsell, Paula Moore, Sheila Choate, Nicki Holbert

Aim for Success –The parent meeting is scheduled for February 25th from 6-7 in the Henrietta Junior High cafeteria. The student program will be February 26th in the morning at the high school and in the afternoon at the junior high. This year it is the Freedom to Succeed program that will cover information about the law.

Wellness Policy – Kim Hollar is going through our policy and updating according to the new guidelines. Some of the items that will need to be addressed will have to be coordinated with the campus principals (campus handbooks will need to be updated and adjusted during the summer so they corrected before the school year starts). We just have to be aware and working on making the adjustments required.

Once we have the wellness policy updated, the school board will need to approve.

We will cancel the March 9th meeting date because Kim Hollar will not be able to attend. We will look at rescheduling our next meeting for an April date to re-address the updates on the policy.

Bicycle Rodeo – Scheduled for April 22.Sheila has scheduled Mark Beauchamp, the transportation director with the City of Wichita Falls. Arty Woods is coming as well. There are a few things that we will try to do differently to make things go smoother this year (see previous meeting notes). Sherry can get up to 50 helmets at no cost. After that they are $7 each. Dr. Greer will help us as well. Sheila will ask the PTO president if they will sponsor about 50 medium and large helmets. Dr. Greer requested that the helmets that he sponsors does not go to the same kids who received a free helmet at the last rodeo (that would be the 3rd graders who are now 5th graders. There were about 22 students). Another comment made was that the teachers needed to stay with their class through all rotations. And group leaders would take the groups from station to station. The problem is that this is during teacher’s conference time and they would have to volunteer their time off to help. Julie thought she could get 3 or 4 parent volunteers to help. Cherise will ask some parents to help as well. Volunteers will need to come at 11 until the end of the school day. Some volunteers will also need to come in the morning to help check in bikes. At least 3 people will need to be outside checking in bikes starting at 7:15 and tagging them by color according to grade level. Kim Hollar said she could come over early to help. Cherise said she will see if someone can cover her morning duty so she can help with bike check-in as well. Jeanette called the ambulance person and they thought they would be able come. Coach West said he thought the student athletes would be able to come talk to the kids about concussions and injuries. Sheila suggested an idea for a demonstration. Put 2 eggs in separate baggies – one wrapped up protectively and one with no protection. The eggs are dropped to show how the unprotected egg will crack. The committee decided it would not be a good idea to try to get “loaner” bikes for kids who don’t bring their own bikes. The other stations are set up to occupy the kids that do not have bikes to go through the bike rodeo.

Employee Wellness Lab – They are coming March 22. The cost is $15. They will be here from 6:30 – 9:00 am. The PTO hospitality person has helped in the past. Jeanette is going to see if they will provide breakfast again this year.

Sherri has curriculum for head start that she is going to try to introduce next year for parent meetings.

In May, Sherri is going to come do a water conservation program for the 5th graders. They are planning it for May 13th.

The meeting was adjourned at 4:55 pm.

The next meeting will be re-scheduled for some time in April before April 22.

      Fall 2016
      October 26, 2016

    Present were Paula Moore, Jeanette Holding, Jessica Longley, Chrystal Compean, Cherise Talley, Carol Patterson, and Clint Perkins. 

    Jessica Longley was the special guest.   Jessica teaches Hot topics,  an abstinence based program focusing on sexual activity and drugs and alcohol.

     The 5 day course consists of DVDs, lectures,  and power point. You can also do a smaller program tailored for your specific needs and wants. Jr high classes are more about making good choices, self esteem, respect, and puberty. The high school classes focus on reproduction and STDs. Jessica said she also has quizzes about the course if you need daily grades and kids generally pay closer attention if they know there is a grade. Also if there is a specific concern at the school, she can tailor to that. It also touches on Bullying. The price of the program is  $200 a day.

    The elementary invested in the Great Body Shop for 5th grade. It has units over nutrition, injury, HIV, drugs, PE, consumer health,etc. Every student gets a booklet.  It has not came in yet, but it covers all 5th grade TEKS. It should come in by November. 

    Mr. Perkins and Mrs. Stanford will be going over High school TEKS. There is no health class.  There are certain classes that touch on these topics, but not all students get them. Mr. Perkins said he will talk to Mr. Smiley and Mrs. Stanford about the presenter. 

    4th and 5th grade health fair is in the spring. Be thinking of ideas or presentors to be discussed at December meeting. 

    Carol Patterson did a survey with the high school and elementary on breakfast menu. She said she would like to do something educational with the students so they understand the requirements and why we have to follow them.

    Health Fair:

    It went really well this year. Everyone showed up! Got good feedback from the kids based on the survey. Presenters included: Endurance House, Heetland Ortho, Sherri Halsell & Jerri Skelton, Laura Pressler – URHC, WFHD, Serenity House, Natural Grocers, Jessica Longley – Zumba.

    Wellness Lab:

    Had 64 people (employees and spouses) show up.

    We need one more elementary parent and one more high school parent.

    Current –

    HES - Heather Dillard

    HJH – Paula Moore, Sheila Catron

    HHS – Chrystal Compean

     Wellness Policy Review –

    As far as we know everything is ok. Carol hasn’t received any more updates from the service center since she has taken over. Jeanette is just going to look at the wellness policy posted online and make sure it looks like it is correct and up to date.

     

    Permission slips/opt out for Hot Topics? Jeanette will ask for her to get opt out letters to us 2 weeks in advance. The junior high and high school may request to budget money to include the entire hot topics program next year.

    Reviewed and approved the proposed Henrietta ISD School Health Advisory Council 2017 Annual Written Report. Paula Moore signed the report which will be submitted to the Henrietta ISD Board of Trustees on April 13, 2017.

    Shac Meeting 10/4/2017

     

    In Attendance: Jeanette Holding, Sherri Halsell, Paula Moore, Merileigh Johnson, Cherise Talley, Melody Smith, Tara Green

     1. Hot Topics

    We are looking at doing the program in the fall this year instead of the spring for the junior high and high school. Last year it was done through 7th grade science and 9th grade Biology. Also, the elementary would also like to have Jessica Longley come to do the talks to the elementary. Jeanette said the program costs about $250 for a full day. By state law it is abstinence based.

     2. SHAC Dates for Next Year

    The next SHAC meeting is scheduled for December 13. We will look at spring dates and schedule those later.

     3. Think of new parents

    The SHAC committee is supposed to consist of more parents than school employees. Chrystal Compean (HHS parent) normally comes. Sheila Catron (HJH parent) normally comes and is a great resource is for our committee. Heather Dillard (HES & HJH Parent) came to one meeting last year - hopefully she will come back. Melody Smith (HES, HJH, & HHS parent) is a new member. Jessica Longley would be an idea as an HES parent. Tammy Williams would be an idea for a HJH and HHS parent.

      

    4. Wellness Policy Evaluation

     Handouts included Student Welfare Wellness and Health Services FFA Local and Wellness Policy Assessment Tool. The committe read through the assessment tool and answered the questions for each section.

      

    5. Any Misc?

    This year will be the bike safety rodeo.

     Melody asked if anyone in our district had talked about Community Resource Collaboration Group.

     We are looking into whether the Lion’s Club will continue to provide support for eyeglass exams and eyeglasses.  Sherri said the ministerial alliance would be another idea that would fund eyeglasses to families in need. Mr. Lowery is supposed to be checking with the main office.
