"Talking About Marijuana"

Marijuana, its increased use and debates around its legalization are some of today’s most challenging topics, especially for parents.

Algoma District School Board’s Parent Involvement Committee invites parents to an important and timely information evening, April 23rd at Superior Heights beginning at 7pm.

Health professionals, along with the Sault Ste Marie Police Liason Officers will share valuable information on what parents need to know about marijuana, and tips for talking to teens about it. 

ADSB’s Mental Health Lead, School Councilors and Mental Health and Addictions Nurses will be present to talk about their roles, working with and supporting students.

Algoma Family Services and Sault Ste Marie Police will help address some of the pressing questions parents have.  

Why are students using drugs?  What are the signs to look for?  How prevalent is marijuana use and what are the risks associated with it? 

Presentations and a community service carousel will be part of the evening, April 23rd 7pm at Superior Heights.

Parents can get involved in their child’s education through Parent Involvement Committees (PICs).
 
 

PARENT INVOLVEMENT COMMITTEE welcomed Dr. Marian Small early this month!

A Parent Involvement Committee is like a school council for the school board. School councils focus on the local school and community. Parent Involvement Committees focus on things that affect more than one school. They also discuss issues that matter to parents across the school board. They do this by:
 
* Supporting parent involvement at the regional level
* Linking parents with the school board’s director of education and trustees.
