2.      86% of responding students that they feel safe at Rogers High School.

4.       60% of students felt that they had “lots of chances” to help decide on activities or rules in their classroom.

5.       More than 80% of students stated that there are lots of chances to speak to a teacher one-on-one.

TRUE If you need to speak to an adult about anything, say something to your advisory teacher. That’s why we are here. At the very least, I can get you connected with the right person to help you.

 

6.      20% said that there was at least “some chance” that they would be seen as “cool” if the smoked cigarettes.

FALSE – Only 9% said that.  Smoking is the leading, preventable cause of death on the United States. Stop now before it’s too late.

  

7.      21% said that at least one of their friends has used e-cigarettes in the past 12 months.

TRUEE-cigarettes or “Vape Pens, etc.”are as addictive as cigarettes and may lead to further abuses of drugs.

8.      90% of all people who try meth become addicted after trying it just once.

FALSEIt’s actually 98%. Meth is a highly addictive drug that is made from chemicals that you’d be afraid to get splashed on your hands.  Yet addicts ingest it.  Go to www.ioit2me.com for more details.
