Do you and your child know the dangers of vaping? This is the latest dangerous behavior our children are engaging in and many are not aware of the effects. B-P’s Parent University is holding “The Dangers of Vaping” Wednesday, May 1 to help you learn the facts. The event will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Margaret Robin Blowers Auditorium at BPHS. Child care will be provided.
Local physician’s assistant and 2011 B-P graduate, Sarah Cope will be on hand to present The Dangers of Vaping along with Advancing Tobacco-Free Communities. The BPHS SADD Group will be presenting an exhibit on vaping and tobacco use in our community as told through their own words and images.
This program is geared toward high school and middle school parents, but intermediate school parents could benefit.
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.
