RE@LBlog is grateful for Sarah’s recent report on her school district, Rosemount, MN, and their focus on anti-tobacco in general and anti-vaping in particular.

Below, you will find one of the school district’s Facebook postings on this critical issue. Note the focus on vaping, the fastest growing addictive, cancerous concern among our many millions of  vulnerable middle school students.

Look at the Rosemount school district’s FaceBook headline to their parents:

“Should I talk to my kids about vaping?”

We all know the answer to that question is, Yes!

Rosemount School District’s concern about vaping is shared across 15,000 school districts nation-wide and 50,000,000 public school students. Over 16,000,000 are youngsters in our middle schools across the country.

Vaping RHS4While tobacco use is an international concern, our nation, our schools, and our parents are particularly concerned about the rising, new smoking trend in our middle schools: Vaping!

Universal health concerns must be shared with our students in general and middle schoolers in particular. Sadly, peer pressure today has much to do with poor choices. (Click photo of students for more information).

To counteract those pressures, RE@L will soon be bringing to middle school students a revolutionary and effective new LearningProduct: “1 Up On Vaping™”.

PrintRE@L’s early testing shows this new product as highly effective in students making wiser health choices.

In January, 2020, RE@L’s “1 Up On Vaping” LearningProduct™ will offer new immersive, virtual journeys to students. They will make their own choices on a  journey that leads them to make wiser decisions for their own health and their own future. Click on our graphic for a Yahoo Lifestyle™ anti-vaping resource. 

RE@L is grateful to the Rosemount School District for their attention to this critical issue.

 RE@L will soon have a “1 Up On Vaping” LearningProduct™ able to secure wiser choices from our youth.
