Substance Abuse Prevention Night for Parents and Students, February 27 at 5:00pm

PFFSD and City High School have teamed up with the Pima County Community Prevention Coalition to schedule an evening of free food and parenting education around the challenging topic of how to talk to your child about drugs and alcohol.  This event will be on Wednesday, February 27, from 5:00 – 7:30 p.m. at 37 Pennington.

The evening will cover how marijuana and other controlled substances affects the developing body and brain, effective communication strategies and tips for talking with your child, and how to respond to and handle those tough questions that may come up. We have found that having these conversations with kids at an early age creates more opportunities to build trust, even if they are difficult. While these workshops will cover the risks associated with illegal substances and underage drinking, they will mostly focus on how to have successful conversations with your child that build openness and trust and lead to safer, more well-informed choices as they get older.  

Dinner will be provided for all families. Please RSVP to Jgroh@paulofreireschool.org or ericas@cityhighschool.org so we know how much food to order.  Space is limited.
