This Thursday evening at Lake International, we had a guest speaker for the parents of YESS students. Gabriella Mohr spoke about prevention education,, which was very appropriate, since we are completing our unit about drugs and alcohol. Parents learned about the dangers that are specific to our community. Parents had excellent questions about the changes to our state laws, and the best ways to talk to their children about drugs and alcohol.
After the presentation, students shared with their parents the slide shows that each had prepared about the adolescent brain, their hot and cool buttons, and some of the things that they have learned this year. Everyone had pizza and great conversations, and parents were very impressed!
