Please join us as SADD Presents: What's Really Going On Out There? A Q&A with Our Teens.
On Wednesday, February 11 at 7:00 in the LS Cafeteria, SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) students have compiled a panel of LSRHS students to give honest and candid responses to questions regarding what teens at LSRHS are doing around substance use. The evening will be set up with students in 1 room and parents in the other, and a voice-altering microphone will enable parents and students to remain anonymous to one another. This evening promises to be a mutual education of both parents and students as to what is really going on out there and what we as parents are wondering about the LS 'party scene'. It is our hope that the ensuing discussion will provide our community with an opportunity to gain a better understanding of what challenges face our community and our kids.
The Friends of the Goodnow Library "Sunday Afternoons at the Goodnow" cultural series continues on February 15, 2015, at 3:00 p.m., with a lecture on America's third president, Thomas Jefferson.
