Jan. 8 Parent University presents “The Dangers of Vaping”

Do you know the dangers of vaping? Broadalbin-Perth’s Parent University is holding an event, Tuesday, Jan. 8, to help you learn the facts. “The Dangers of Vaping with Sarah Cope” is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Virtual AP Room at BPHS. Child care will be provided.

Please help organizers by registering here. This program is geared toward high school and middle school parents, but intermediate school parents could benefit.

Local physician’s assistant and 2011 B-P graduate, Sarah Cope will be on hand to present the dangers of vaping. This is the latest dangerous behavior our children are engaging in and many are not aware of the effects. Cope attended Albany School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.

Parent University is a community collaboration led by Broadalbin-Perth. Through Parent University, Broadalbin-Perth partners with community agencies and organizations to offer free courses, family events and activities that will equip families with new or additional skills, knowledge, resources and the confidence to become full partners in their children’s education. The goal of Parent University is to increase parent involvement in B-P schools and empower parents to raise children who are successful in school and in life. Research has shown that parents can increase a child’s academic success through their involvement with schools and communities. Parental involvement improves student morale, attitudes, and academic achievement across all subject areas.
