As part of our health education program and ongoing commitment to prevention and wellness, we have invited a Prevention Education Specialist from Prevention Education to join our community the week of February 5.

In addition to the work they will do with Middle and High School students and the faculty/staff, a Prevention Education Specialist will host a workshop for Middle and High School parents/guardians on Wednesday, February 7 from 8:45 – 10:00 a.m. at the High School to offer support and guidance in helping your child(ren) enjoy a drug-free adolescence.

Please RSVP to TuNice Cole or Julie Marks if you are planning on attending. The workshop will be recorded and made available for our parents/guardians to watch after the event.

The workshop is open to Middle and High School parents/guardians and will cover topics such as:

  • • Effective ways to communicate with your child about drugs and drug use.
  • • Up-to-date facts about current drug use and trends.
  • • What to say about your own experiences with alcohol and/or drug experimentation.
  • • How to spot early warning signs of trouble and effective ways to respond.

Prevention Education Specialists are highly trained professionals who have achieved long-term recovery from alcohol or other drug addictions. This unique perspective enhances the credibility of their message and provides students with role models for happy, healthy, drug-free living.

This program presents a perfect opportunity for discussing alcohol and other drug-related issues with your children/adolescents. Parental involvement is crucial to reduce the risks teenagers face. We want our students to hear from both school and home that we are concerned about alcohol, nicotine, and other drug use by adolescents, and that we are committed to keeping our children safe.

If you have any questions or would like more information about Prevention Education, please contact Julie Marks on the Goshen Campus or TuNice Cole at the High School.
