Challenge Day Volunteers Needed

Please join us as an Adult Participant at our upcoming Challenge Day on November 4th and 5th. Adult participants are encouraged to sign up for either day OR both days.

Challenge Days are powerful, high-energy programs in which youth and adult participants are guided through a series of experiential learning processes. The overall goals of the program are to increase personal power and self-esteem, to shift dangerous peer pressure to positive peer support and to eliminate the acceptability of teasing, violence and all forms of oppression. The Challenge Day Program is designed to unite the members of the school or community and to empower them to carry the themes of the program back to the school population. Challenge Days also successfully addresses issues of violence, teasing, social oppression, racism, harassment, conflict management, suicide, peer pressure, alcohol and drugs.

Since 1987, the Challenge Day Program has touched the lives of over half-a-million teens and adults nationwide. The Challenge Day Program has received numerous awards from the juvenile justice system, government officials and many school districts and cities throughout the nation. The program was featured in the book Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul and the Emmy Award-winning documentary Teen Files: Surviving High School.

We encourage adults to volunteer as positive role models for the benefit of the youth. The program welcomes parents/guardians, teachers, administrators, police officers, elected officials, community members and any other interested adults. This allows youth to see another side of these adults in addition to their assigned community roles.

Adult Participants are crucial for the success of the day. Challenge Day leaders will meet with all Adults for at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the program to let you know what is needed from you and to answer your questions. No prior training is necessary other than the morning check-in meeting. Our Challenge Day staff closely monitors the program and our Leaders will give all instructions throughout the day. You must be able to remain on site and participate fully for the entire program, including 30 minutes after the program at the end of the day for a post-Challenge Day debriefing. Adult Participants are needed from 7:20 am - 3:00 pm.

For more information, feel free to visit this website: http://www.challengeday.org/challenge-day-program.php.  You may also contact me with questions.  We hope you will be able to join us for this wonderful experience!

Join us tonight, September 27th as Falmouth/Greely Football Team takes on Mt. Blue (Farmington) for Homecoming

posted Sep 27, 2019, 6:36 AM by Tammy Tarling   [ updated Sep 27, 2019, 6:40 AM ]

Dear Parents/Guardians:
 
Tonight at 6:30pm, the Falmouth/Greely Football Team takes on Mt. Blue (Farmington) for Homecoming at Falmouth High School. 
 
Farmington experienced a tragedy on Sept 16th when a gas leak caused a building to explode.  One fireman was killed and 6 others were injured.  A trailer park behind the building was also leveled and 31 people lost their homes and belongings. 
 
Tonight at the football game in Falmouth, there will be a 50-50 raffle as well as donation bins at the ticket window and snack shack to raise money for the people impacted by the explosion.  The money will go to the Tri Valley United Way, who has set-up a fund specifically for the victims. 
 
Let's show Farmington the Yachtsmen and Ranger spirit and raise as much as we can for our neighbors!
 
Go Falmouth/Greely!
