Don’t Buy the Lie Assembly and Anti-Smoking Billboard Contest
Today, all Olympus students had the opportunity to attend an assembly sponsored by Kaiser Permanente to learn about the effects of drugs on the brain from Dr. Victor DeNoble. Dr. DeNoble was a scientist for Phillip Morris Research Center in the late 70’s and early 80’s. He worked in a secret research lab to develop a cigarette with reduced heart risk. After successfully identifying a nicotine substitute that did not elevate the heart rate in animal models, his attempts to publish his work were suppressed by Philip Morris. He was eventually fired and his laboratory and data were seized. In 1994, after a decade of being silenced by a secrecy agreement, Dr. DeNoble became the first whistle-blower to testify before Congress about his research conducted within the tobacco industry. His research showed that nicotine has addictive properties similar to other drugs of addiction. His congressional testimony was the cornerstone for sweeping changes in public policy regarding tobacco use and the national tobacco settlement.

Students have the opportunity to enter in the Kaiser Permanente, Don’t Buy the Lie Anti Smoking Billboard Contest. Students should come into the front office to pick-up the entry form. For more information, please visit: www.kpdbtl.com

CJSF Crayon Drive
Donate any of your used Crayons to the Crayon Drive here at Olympus. CJSF members will sort the crayons and mail them off to the Crayon Initiative organization who melts them down, makes new crayons out of them, and distributes to children's hospitals. This initiative keeps crayons out of the landfill and brings joy to kids. The crayons can be brought by at any point, but the big donation day is Thursday March 23rd. We will have boxes on the outside stage Thursday morning for donations, and the sorting event will be after school that day 2:30-3:30 in the multi. The event is put on by CJSF and supported by the Environmental Club.
