April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month
“The National Child Abuse Prevention Month is a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect, and to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families. During the month of April and throughout the year, communities are encouraged to share child abuse and neglect prevention awareness strategies and activities and promote prevention across the country.” (Source)
Child abuse and neglect is a serious crime, impacting children’s lives and their families, as well as, affecting community and society. We all have a responsibility to help keep our most vulnerable population, our children, safe and cared for. To report child abuse and neglect call the hotline at 1-800-392-3738, TDD: 1-800-669-8689.
School Farm Welcomes New Animals
The Buffalo High School agriculture program's school farm welcomes new animals. Five agriculture students each purchased a crossbred market hog to raise and exhibit at the Dallas County Livestock Show Thursday, June 23, 2016.  Ag construction students built the floors and pens that house the pigs inside the barn.  The students also replumbed water lines to the waterers. 

The students' hogs weigh approximately 85 pounds right now. They will be weighed in for the fair April 23 and again June 23 for the market hog show.  The finish show weight should be about 260 pounds. The pigs will be judged on rate of gain and muscle mass. They will also be judged in an on-foot class with other market hogs comparable to their weight. The show is a terminal show in which the pigs will be sold after the show in an auction. The pigs will be purchased by local businesses and individuals that come to bid on the hogs and support the students in their agriculture projects. Other businesses and family members may also support the students with added money to the hogs.

The agriculture program and students would like to thank show pig producer, Joe Roberts of Fair Grove, for selling them pigs for a fair market value to help the students sell their pigs for a profit.
Caring For Kids After Trauma and Death
Dear Parents,
I have shared information entitled:  Caring For Kids After Trauma and Death which is published by the Institute for Trauma and Stress at the NYU Child Study Center. A "Parent's Guide" begins on page 16 of the document. It provides information on how children react, what they know and what to say and is presented for different age groups as they process death differently according to their age. Other information includes helping children cope with death, bereavement coping tasks and when to get help: general warning signs. This guide is intended to help parents and school personnel respond to the needs of students after a death. It is not intended to serve as a guide to clinical care or bereavement counseling. The Crisis Response Team is currently available to work with students individually and in small groups and will continue to be available as long as necessary.
