Salesian Quote of the Day

Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. 2 During supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him, 3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, 4 rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. 5 Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. 6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, do you wash my feet?” 7 Jesus answered him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand.” 8 Peter said to him, “You shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no share with me.” 9 Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!” 10 Jesus said to him, “The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet,[a] but is completely clean. And you[b] are clean, but not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was to betray him; that was why he said, “Not all of you are clean.” John 13:1-17

 

Next Week: Looking for a Scantron Alternative? Learn About GradeHub

GradeHub is a more convenient way to score multiple-choice exams using paper answer sheets. In contrast to Scantron, GradeHub uses personalized answer sheets that can be printed from an ordinary printer and read by an ordinary scanner. No need to buy special answer sheets or scoring machines. GradeHub integrates with Blackboard and provides useful test statistics.

A GradeHub session on Wednesday, April 24 at 3PM, will be led by DEIT Director Eric Hagan. Eric has been using GradeHub all semester and will show you exactly how it works. This session is for faculty that use machine-readable answer sheets (Scantrons) and staff that support them

This session will be held in the DEIT office conference area (Dooling 40) or join us online at http://tinyurl.com/DEITZoom.

Mock Teen Bedroom: Can You Find the Stash?

typical teen room

Visit the mock bedroom prior to the Cris Carter presentation:
April 25, 2019, 5PM-6PM
DUC

This program is for ADULTS ONLY.

It seems like a typical teenager’s bedroom, but look more closely and what you find will shock you. What looks like an ordinary item, such as a water bottle or hairbrush, may actually be a “diversion safe,” used to stash drugs and drug-related paraphernalia. These containers are easily purchased online and at local retailers. This interactive experience challenges parents and caregivers to try to find the more than 100 hidden items, including:

  • Mock drugs
  • Seemingly real containers that are actually “Stash Safes”
  • Drug paraphernalia
  • Common household items that can indicate abuse

This learning experience, the first of its kind in the Lehigh Valley, is made possible by:

  • Lehigh County Department of Human Services, Drug and Alcohol Division
  • Northampton County Department of Human Services, Drug and Alcohol Division

The Center for Humanistic Change engages community members in building skills to address life’s challenges. Visit thechc.org for more info.
