Drugs Uncovered – Adult Education

drugsuncMiddle Creek High School is pleased to offer  . . .
Drugs Uncovered: What Parents and Other Adults Need to Know!, one of the Poe Center’s (poehealth.org) premier adult education program, is being offered at Middle Creek High School in the Auditorium on Wednesday April 17th at 6:30 PM, the week leading leading up to Saturday April 20th.  And if you’re not quite sure why I mentioned 4/20, you’ll certainly have a lot you can learn from this opportunity.
Recently updated and enhanced in 2012, Drugs Uncovered explores the teenage drug, alcohol and tobacco culture of today. The two hour workshop combines a lecture-style format with an interactive, travelling exhibit.  At approximately 20’ X 20’, the Poe Center’s Teenager of Today’s Bedroom holds over 70 references to substances that include elements of pop culture and common and not-so-common hiding places for drugs.
Drugs Uncovered: What Parents and Other Adults Need to Know! provides an interactive lecture presentation style that incorporates everything from de-coding text messages to recognizing pop artists whose lyrics endorse the consumption of illegal substances.  This program is for adults only and teenagers are not allowed to attend as it’s geared towards middle and high school parents and the professionals who work with them daily.
If you would like to participate in this program, please RSVP ahead of time so that we can have enough materials.  Click here to pre-register or contact Brentt Coley at 919-773-3891 (voicemail is sufficient).

The NAHS is collecting canned and nonperishable foods for the NC Food Bank to help those less fortunate. Please bring donated items to Ms. Taylor’s class in room 304, or place them in the big box in the commons. It’s always nice to think of others, especially when you can help them so easily. Your donations will go a long way in helping others.
