The Mayor/Superintendent’s Attendance Task Force wishes to thank the over 250 community partners that participated in the first (and hopefully not last) High Five School Year Kick Off. The turnout today (9/7/16) was a true testimony of the “it takes a village” approach that Fall River uses in our positive youth development initiatives. Smiles were aplenty on both the arriving students and the high-fiving, caring adults. There were even appreciative parents who were bidding adieu as they dropped off their children.  
 

Here’s to a successful school year as together, we strive for every student to attend every day!

Did you recently receive a rewards coupon from Bob's Store or Jockey or some other favorite retail location, but don't really need anything?  Don't let it expire, instead purchase some children's socks to help support our Happy Feet program.  Kids socks (generally sizes 9-3 and 3-9, although there may be some variation) will be collected on an ongoing basis and can be brought to any Thursday meeting.  White crew socks are preferred.  Bob's Store has sent me my free $10 birthday coupon and I will be stopping by before the end of the month to get socks before it expires.  What will you do with your retail rewards?

Practicing peace
Nations around the world will observe the International Day of Peace on 21 September, a date designated by the United Nations in 2001 as "a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence." Rotary's commitment to building peace and resolving conflict is rooted in the Rotary Peace Centers program, formed in 2002. Each year, the program prepares up to 100 fellows to work for peace through a two-year master's degree program or a three-month professional certificate program at university partners worldwide. Today, nearly 1,000 peace centers alumni are applying their skills — negotiating peace in conflict...
