April 4th Parent Education “Hidden in Plain Sight"
The Hidden in Plain Sight immersive experience helps parents/guardians spot signs of at-risk behaviors, using an interactive display of a teenager's bedroom. Casual substance use is growing more prevalent among our SnoValley teens
After walking through the display, participants will learn more about adolescent development, risk and protective factors, and common signs of substance use provided by community prevention professionals. This exhibit is designed to educate and empower parents/guardians to communicate with their children about at-risk behaviors, expectations and more. A strong parent/guardian-teen relationship and clear consistent communication is one of the most effective protective factors to prevent youth substance use. Reserve a Free Spot

(if you missed out on this teacher appreciation event, you can still show your love by purchasing an item from the Teachers Wishlist)
