Ponderable:  One of the most robust findings in developmental psychology is that kids learn how to treat one another by watching the way adults treat them and treat each other.” From “Self-Regulatory Climate: A Social Resource for Student Regulation and Achievement” by Curt Adams, Patrick Forsyth, Ellen Dollarhide, Ryan Miskell, and Jordan Ware in Teachers College Record, February 2015.

Help the CBMS Student Council to support Mandy Drake on her road to recovery! To help support Mrs. Drake, we are selling green wristbands that say “No One Fights Alone”. We will sell them until our supply runs out! Please bring two dollars to purchase your own. Two years ago Mrs.Drake suffered a stroke. Since then she has had multiple surgeries, one involved taking out a piece of her skull to allow her brain to swell during the healing process. Unfortunately, the surgeries were unsuccessful, and Mrs.Drake’s medical team identified that she was in need of a liver transplant. Mrs.Drake has been placed on the donor list, but the list is long. We are raising money to help out with the liver transplant, and all of the other expenses that go into it. The green wristbands are only two dollars and would be supporting not only a good cause, but also one of our own. So please, buy your wristbands. We will be selling them before AG, during some lunches, and Ms. Morse will have them available as well.

There are other ways to help this cause as well. Here is information from the Waterbury Fire Department:
