Miles To Go – Drug Prevention Education Information

 

Dear 5th, 6th 7th & 8th Grade Parents,

Thank you to those that were able to join us for Kelly and Jonathon’s  Mile To Go Drug Prevention Education Parent Meetings.   Kelly and Jonathon provided great information and resources to support our children as they navigate the world of drugs, alcohol, vaping/smoking and social media.  They emphasized the use of drugs and alcohol has increased across the board for all ages during Covid.  

They will be working with our children for a week long lecture series.  5th & 6th grade took place the week of January 11th and 7th & 8th grade will take place next week starting on February 8th.
