YOUTH PROTECTION TRAINING
Thank you to Mom Barbara Parisella for her talk on peer pressure as our Youth Protection Training at Grand Officers' Day. If you missed it, or would like additional information, here is a link from the Employee Assistance Program's newsletter.
"Help your child explore what it takes to be successful at thwarting peer pressure. With the start of school again, there's no time like the present for this information. Try some fun role plays and skill builders. Circumventing peer pressure has five key components: 1) Saying "No" - Learning how and meaning it. 2) Situation Avoidance - Taking action to steer clear of events likely to include peer pressure. 3)Understanding Consequences - Accepting that giving in to peer pressure has consequences and effects. 4) Valuing Self-worth - Having confidence and valuing self-worth over peer approval. 5) Resilience - Learning to recover from disapproval by peers (including bullying, which often accompanies peer pressure) for making the right choice.

CONTESTS

Individual Contest Ages: 11-13, 14-17, 18-21. Come up with your own spell or charm
(Rainbow related). Examples of what the spell could do: - Put the crown perfectly ready on your head - Setting up/taking down the assembly room - Ironing the altar cloth - Finding your shoes, etc. These spells or charms will be performed at Grand Assembly instead of the Assembly project. You will go up, perform your spell/charm and say a little explanation as to what it does.

Assembly Contest A year at Hogwarts: Assembly Scrapbook: A scrapbook of the year, following their own assembly, not the grand level, however Grand Functions may be added if the assembly chooses.
Both of these contests will be judged by the out-of-state guests at Grand Assembly 2019.

Travel Gavel - To get it you must go "steal" it with at least 25% of your girls on the books as of Dec. 31, 2017. The Assembly that steals it the most during the year will receive a reward at Grand Assembly. As of today, the gavel is at East Greenwich Assembly.
