They will need make the teacher aware of their early departure and watch the time so they leave at the designated time on their pass. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">There will be three presentations that follow a brief homeroom. (Homeroom assignments will be posted in the 9<sup>th</sup> grade center as the student enter on October 14<sup>th</sup>.) The three programs and the altered bell schedule are listed and explained below: </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>Program 1</strong></span>.  AIM for Success Abstinence Program </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>Program 2</strong></span>.  Navigating Social Media</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>Program 3</strong></span>.  Effort, Education, Excellence Program by Keith Davis</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong> </strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>Program 1</strong></span></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong><em>AIM FOR SUCCESS</em></strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong><em>"Why Sexual Abstinence? It Protects."</em></strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Today's young people are growing up in a society where dating is out and hooking up is in. Pop culture is telling your child that sex is no big deal and everyone does it. This is indeed a difficult time to be a teenager – not to mention parenting a teenager. However, your child is going to have a unique opportunity to hear a far different message when AIM for Success, Inc. presents its nationally acclaimed program which shares the advantages of saving sex for marriage. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">This program<em> </em>addresses the problems of teen pregnancies, the escalating STD epidemic and the traumatic, emotional pain often associated with teen sexual activity. The program clearly demonstrates to the students that saving sex for marriage provides FREEDOM from these problems while giving them the FREEDOM to fulfill their dreams and goals! </p><p style="text-align:justify;">AIM For Success, Inc. has educated over 1.5 million young people across America during the past 15 years with their motivational presentations. </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>You are Encouraged to Attend the Parent Program </strong></span></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Location: Seven Lakes High School – 9</strong><strong><sup>th</sup></strong><strong> Grade Commons</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Date: Tuesday October 13, 2015</strong><strong>   </strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Time: 7:00PM – 8:00PM</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Parent Program will provide a preview of the student program and equip you with creative ideas to help your child avoid sexual activity until marriage.

This program will discuss topics such as Digital Citizenship and Cyber Bullying to help the students learn to responsibility use social media.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>Program 3</strong></span></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong><em>Keith Davis</em></strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong><em>"EFFORT, EDUCATION, EXCELLENCE!!"</em></strong><strong><em>  </em></strong></p><p>The program is exciting, interactive, humorous, content rich, informative, motivating, and challenging. </p><p>The program will include a message about:</p><ul><li>Right Choices /Right Voices</li><li>Wrong Choices/Wrong Voices</li><li>Peer Pressure (Friends- Dream Makers/or Dream Breakers)</li><li>9th Graders-On TRACK to Success!                          </li><li>Dreams/Goal setting (are you Wishing or Working )</li><li>Effort /Education /Excellence</li><li>Respect/Responsibility/Rules</li><li>Complications of High School Relationships</li><li>Drugs & Depression </li><li>Suicide is not the Answer <br><br> <div style="text-align:center;"><strong>Highlights of the Freshman Bell Schedule for October 14, 2015</strong></div></li></ul><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default ms-rte-paste-settablesizes"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><p>Home Room </p><p>Rotation 1 </p><p>Rotation 2 </p><p>Rotation 3 </p><p>Home Room </p></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><p>7:30 – 7:45 7:50 – 8:55 </p><p>9:00 –10:05 </p><p>10:10 – 11:15 </p><p>11:20 – 11:35** </p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>A Lunch                     11:35 – 12:05</p><p>B Lunch                    12:05 – 12:32</p><p>C Lunch                    12:32 – 1:03</p><p>D Lunch                    1:03 – 1:33</p><p><strong>**</strong>(dismissal time will be adjusted based on actual completion time of the PSAT)</p><p>Times for 4<sup>th</sup>, 5<sup>th</sup>, 6<sup>th</sup>, and 7<sup>th</sup> periods will be adjusted ​</p></div>
