    Red Ribbon Week


    Stringer Attendance Center Peer Council sponsored Red Ribbon Week October 29th through

    November 2nd, 2018. This year’s theme was “Say Boo to Drugs.” Kindergarten through 2nd grade

    participated in a coloring contest and the fifth and sixth graders designed posters emphasizing the

    negative effects of drugs. 

    On Tuesday Deputy R. H. Stockman spoke with students in grades K5-6th grade about the importance

    of making smart decisions and staying drug free.  Red Ribbon week was October 29-November 2.  Deputy 

    Stockman brought along K9 partner Jet to entertain the children and teach them about how important it is

    to be in control at all times.  Jet is a 7 year old Belgian Malinois and he loves children.  Jet demonstrated

    how to find drugs, how he listens to commands from only Deputy Stockman and not everyone else, and how

    he is rewarded for doing a good job.  Deputy Stockman and Jet also spoke about the importance of not caving

    to peer pressure, and being true to one’s self.  Deputy Stockman and K9 Jet are available to come to any school

    in Jasper County upon request.

    Stringer Blood Drive




    The Stringer High School Student Council conducts blood drives twice a year –

    in the fall and spring. The student council blood drive was held on Tuesday,

    October 31st in the band hall on Stringer Attendance Center’s campus in collaboration

    with Vitalant’s Be A Hero program coordinated by school nurse, Rachael Hosey.

    The “Be A Hero” program was established to educate youth about the importance

    of donating blood. Vitalant is the new branding for the former United Blood Services. 

    The drive was open to students, staff, and community members.

    Tuesday’s blood drive was held in honor of Stringer High School senior,

    Cole Jackson who was recently diagnosed with leukemia.

     “According to Erika Bush, our Vitalant representative, with the 111 units we donated,

    333 lives can be impacted," said Sonya Ready, co-sponsor of student council. Nurse Hosey

    reported, "We had 39 first-time donors and surpassed our original goal of collecting at least 58 units.”

    Co-sponsor Kim Brown commented, "I think the lesson is that every time we do a drive, we are

    all a part of one team and one family in our community. Donating blood can positively

    influence our community, our state, our country and our world. It is nice to know that we are a small part of something

    much larger and so important.” Student council member/student coordinator Landon Bradley said, “The blood

     drive is a good way for our students to learn to give a part of themselves to something

    that can impact others inside and outside of their community.”

    "We need to reach out into our community and directly affect the people that need help the

    most. When you put that together with a group of students taking ownership in a project and

    fostering leadership skills- it’s a win-win." Ready said. Both sponsors said they are proud of the

    leadership their council members show in coordinating this event. Student coordinators of the drive were

    Alexis Cook, Austin Rayner, Landon Bradley, Lily Ready, Mallory Avary, and Brittany Bustillos.

    Stringer Attendance Center will host their next blood drive in February of 2019.

    state board of education. Austin is the son of Billy and Elisa Rayner.

    Stringer Attendance Center recognized and honored their 2018 fall semester dual enrolled students with  "Athletic Passes".

    The pass allows the student to attend all home, regular season games for free. The biggest perk for these dual enrolled students

    is they are earning high school and college credit at the same time. Student can begin to dual enroll when they have met the

    state criteria which is usually at the end of 10th grade. Student have the opportunity to earn a maximum of 36 college credit before

    they graduate high school. Hats off to these high achieving students!!
