Family Education Night

  Family Education Night
Thursday, September 18

 

Time:             6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Location:        Brookwood Elementary Cafeteria

Speaker:         Todd Shirley, Director of Safety for Forsyth County Schools

Kids’ Activity:   Dojo Cumming South

Officer Shirley will talk with us about how to keep our kids safe from drugs and alcohol. We’ll learn street names of common drugs, what to watch for, and how to talk with our kids. Do you think our kids are too young for us to worry about drugs? Think again! This is an eye-opening and educational seminar that you don't want to miss! This seminar is for adults only. While Officer Shirley is speaking with parents in the cafeteria, Dojo Cumming South will entertain the students in the gym.

If you’ve attended an Education Night in years past, please note that this event will be slightly different because we are not offering dinner. We hope you enjoy this streamlined event, and we welcome your feedback. We’d like to hear if you prefer this one-hour, seminar-only event, or if you prefer a longer event with time to eat and socialize. After the event, please let us know your thoughts: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Forsyth County Drug Awareness Council

Did you know that 4 out of 5 kids will try drugs and/or alcohol before their senior year of high school and over half of all kids will have tried an illicit drug prior to senior year? These are national statistics but this epidemic has infi...ltrated Forsyth county as well. We’re losing children to overdose and incarceration due to drug use. This has to stop!

For this reason, Forsyth County has recently created the Forsyth County Drug Awareness Council. This council is tasked with educating residents on drug use in the county, promoting prevention programs and providing lists of resources for residents on what do to when they suspect a loved one is abusing drugs or alcohol. Find more information at www.forsythcountydrugawarenesscouncil.org, and attend our Family Education Night on Thursday, September 18th, at Brookwood's Cafeteria, 6:30-7:30pm.
