Recently your child brought home information about the Strengthening Families Program. The program is intended for you and your 6th or 7th grade child to attend together. The program meets seven consecutive Thursdays beginning April 11th.
The Strengthening Families Program is a parent, youth, and family skills-building curriculum designed to prevent teen substance abuse and other behavior problems, strengthen parenting skills, and build family strengths.
Free dinner is served at 5:30. Free sibling child care is also provided. At 6:00 youth meet with youth program leaders and their peers, while parents meet with a program leader and their peers. At 7:15 youth and parents get back together and practice skills together and play fun family games. To register for this free program or learn more about it, you can return the form to your child's homeroom teacher. If your child did not bring the packet home you may call the project office at 814-867-3677 or email Mary Ann Demi at firstname.lastname@example.org to register or learn more about the program
