On Tue Feb. 17th, Cst. Megan Arbuthnot will be giving a Kids and Drugs presentation for parents of students from St. Brother Andre, Thomas D”Arcy McGee and St. John Paul II Elementary schools. The presentation will take place at T.D. McGee School at 635 Laveredrye Drive  from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  Please mark your calendar and plan to attend this worthwhile presentation. See below for a brief description.




The workshop is intended to inform and advise parents and caregivers who want to learn more about their role in preventing their school aged children (generally, ages eight through 15) from using or abusing alcohol and drugs.  The focus of the program is prevention, not intervention or treatment.  The target audience is parents who are striving to acquire the skills and knowledge required to raise healthy children who will not experience problems with alcohol or drugs.   The Kids and Drugs program is to directly address important protective factors in the family, such as open communication and supportive relationships between parents and children.
