During the week of April 21st, Council Rock is presenting two programs addressing the issue of teens and substance abuse.
On Monday April 21 at 7 pm at Council Rock High School South in Holland, nationally renowned speaker and comedian Matt Bellace will present “A Better High: Supporting Teens in Making Healthy Choices”. Author of the book, A Better High: Laugh, Help, Run, Love… and Other Great ways to Get Naturally High!, Dr. Bellace uses humor and inspirational stories to teach how to communicate with teens without arguing while sharing examples of how to teach responsibility and healthy coping skills.
On Wednesday April 23 at 7 pm at Richboro Middle School in Richboro, Greg Schick of Drug Free PA will present “Straight Talk for Parents” – an engaging discussion with parents about on the prevalence of substance abuse in our schools and how to recognize signs of use and abuse. A US Army Veteran and currently in law enforcement, Mr. Schick is a member of the Drug Free Pennsylvania coalition, travelling throughout the state and providing parents with practical tools to open a conversation with their children about the dangers of drug use.
Parents and community members are encouraged to attend one or both events to learn more about substance abuse issues – from identifying warning signs in your teen to practical ways to help them grow up substance-free. Both programs are open to all community members and are free of charge. Interested attendees are encouraged to RSVP to CRCHY@crsd.org so that event planners can prepare for refreshments and handouts.
The April 21st program is presented by Council Rock High School South’s SADD students. The April 23rd program is the final event of the “Raising Great Kids,” Speaker Series presented by the Council Rock Coalition for Healthy Youth and the Council Rock Education Foundation and sponsored by Customers Bank.
