************SENIOR ADVICE TO YOUNGER STUDENTS!******************
Today's advice is from Maya Vanterpool ('16): While sitting around talking may seem appealing, sitting down and doing your work is actually the better choice. While teachers may seem annoying they're usually right. 
SHOUT OUT to Mr. Cates for sponsoring a Staff spirit event last week! Does your class read the announcements? Shout your teacher out! See Ms. Davis or email

CORRECT ANSWER to Medical Question:   c) Hot chocolate.Reason: With GERD, eating substances that decrease lower esophageal sphincter pressure causes heartburn. A decrease in the lower esophageal sphincter pressure allows gastric contents to reflux into the lower end of the esophagus. Foods that can cause a decrease in esophageal sphincter pressure include fatty foods, chocolate, caffeinated beverages, peppermint, and alcohol. A diet high in protein and low in fat is recommended for clients with GERD. Lean beef, popcorn, and raw vegetables would be acceptable.
