Additionally, our mosaic dedication ceremony has been rescheduled (details below). We are hoping for good weather on the 11th, and we hope to see you there.


Sincerely,


Joshua Swanner

Principal

Reminder: Mosaic Dedication Ceremony

Introduction to Text-for-Help/Raising a Drug-Free Teen - An Operating Manual for Perplexed Parents

Andy Duran, CEO of LEAD

Teens who don't drink or use drugs say that the number one reason they have made that choice is you! Talking with your teen about difficult topics is both one of the hardest and one of the most important things we will ever do as a parent. We at LEAD hope to help you with these conversations.


What are you already doing right? Where could you maybe use additional support? No matter what questions you come in with - and whether you are a parent in need of guidance or simply a community stakeholder interested in the issues facing our teens - we'd love to see you there.

Maneuvering the ever-changing landscape of technology, social media, and phones for students is a daunting task for any parents.
