N.D. The Park River Student Council. under the direction of their advisors, Amanda Gull and' Maribeth Anderson. worked with their school board and administration to help pass comprehensive tobacco- free policies for their school. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that schools develol and enforce policies to prohibit tobacco use by students, staff, parents and visitors on school grounds, in school vehicles, and at all school- sporisored events, those held both on or off school property. Tobacco is a powerful, addictive drug, and many teens begin using cigarettes or spit tobacdo at a young age. It is well established that tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death and disease in the United States and that more than 80 percent of adult users started before age 18. The high school smoking rate in North Dakota is 22.4%, which is higher than lhe national average of 19.8%. For example, with 191 Park River High School students, statically speaking this indicates that approximately 43 students are smokers. The Park River School. along with all other schools in Walsh County has taken the next step to help improve these statistics. Setting a comprehensive tobacco- flee school policy that prohibits all tobacco use is one step in building a healthier future for our youth. A comprehensive tobacco-free Above: Park River students Lee Jelinek, Alaina Myrdal, Cody Brust and Molly Sobolik accept a plaque on behalf of Park River Schools. (Photo: Submitted) school policy does more than deter individual tobacco use. It benefits everyone by reducing exposure to secondhand smoke. According to a 2006 Surgeon General's Report. there is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke. As little as 30 minutes of exposure to secondhand smoke can affect the coronary arteries of healthy, . young nonsmokers. It causes acute and chronic respiratory disease and causes or exacerbates asthma, ear infections and upper respiratory infections primary causes of school absence. Student council members who actually presented the proposed policy to their school board include: Lee Jelinek. Alaina Myrdal. Cody Brust and Molly Sobolik. The Walsh County Health Department presented a plaque to these student council members in recognition of their efforts on behalf of their student council and school. In addition, the Health Department commends three Park River students who have joined the Walsh County Tobacco Coalition. These students. Carly Myrdal, Riley Francis, and Dylan Sundby attend quarterly meetings to give their input'on tobacco issues in Walsh County and our state. Student input is an important ingredient in tobacco control programs as this is often the age that people begin to use tobacco products. Congratulations to the P rk River School on this important step in helping to decrease tobacco use in North Dakota. Watsh County" can now proudly say that all students in Walsh County are covered by comprehensive tobacco-free policies as recommended by CDC and the ND Department of Health! are banking on bones CRYSTAL. N.D. -- Mrs. Oi on invited NDSU Pembina County Extension Agent Helen Volk-Schill into her 5th grade health class to study the importance of consuming calcium- rich foods. The five week program "Banking on Strong Bones" included several hands-on activities and take-home parent newsletters. The 5th graders made cow banks, kept track of their daily calcium intake on a chart and received rewards "cow coins" for participating. Parhcipants learnt, sow to identify calcium-rich foods, weight-bearing exercises and the importance of healthy lifestyles. The youth gained knowledge on healthy snacks based on MyPyramid and learned how to read nutrition facts labels. The last day of class was celebrated with everyone receiving certificates and enjoying a snack of whole wheat crackers and a three bean. corn and salsa dip. Above: Valley/Edinburg 5th graders show off their certificates forlearning about calcium. (Photo: Submitted) By Donna Galloway Hey aggie fans, the winter activities are now officially over.
