If They Had Known
On Thursday, every student at PNHS viewed the documentary "If They Had Known" followed up by a live Q&A between two SADD students and PYDC Coordinators Kelly & Merielle. There was also a community showing in the evening where over 40 parents and students came to watch the film and engage in meaningful discussion around "party culture".
In July of 2017, a PhotoVoice project was completed with rising 6th and 7th graders at the Boys & Girls Club. Through photography and focus groups, youth shared their voice on issues around substance use, mental health and healthy coping mechanisms. Join us as we showcase their work next Thursday!

A very special thank you to Dr. White, ELA Academic Coordinator, Mr. Caple, VPA Coordinator, as well as all of the teachers and parents who encouraged students to submit work and who work daily to nurture creative, talented, and passionate writers.
