E-Cigarettes: What Parents Should Know

Pence Families:


The use of e-cigarettes, or "vaping" devices have become prevalent amongst both teens and pre-teens, including middle school students. We want to help you become educated about this trend and the dangers of it's use. Please take some time to review the two documents above from the CDC.

These were posted last year as well and we had some positive feedback from parents who were thankful for the information.


Sincerely-

John Childs

TAHS Activities

The TAHS weekly activities calendar will be added to our newsletter each week as we have 8th grade students participating in JV sports, marching band, and other activities. Plus, we always want to support all of our Knights! Most weeks, the TA activities calendar will be linked as a pdf document and will be located at the bottom or our Pence Press newsletter.


This will be found at the bottom of our newsletter along with menus, etc. from now on.
