Spring has sprung!  Along with the nicer weather comes a season of celebration for many students.   Proms, graduations, picnics, parties, end of school year celebrations, just to name a few.

The coming weeks will present plenty of opportunities for teens to consider engaging in high risk behavior, especially drinking alcohol and using other drugs. Let’s help and support our kids in having fun, but in a safe and healthy manner.

“We are free to choose our paths, but we can't choose the consequences that come with them.”
Sean Covey, The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective Teens

As community members, we are asking you to help us create a climate of celebration that is safe and memorable, ensuring future health and happiness for our teens and their friends.

“We are the sum total of the decisions we have made.”
E.A. Bucchianeri
