Parents, are you in the know when it comes to the technology your youth might be using? We recommend reading this article from the Drug Free Action Alliance (DFAA)

NPR Story - Parent Rules Affect Teen Choices

We would like to bring to your attention a recent story that was released by NPR on May 31.

"New research finds that socializing kids to drink at the family table -- often referred to as the "European drinking model" -- doesn't necessarily translate to more responsible drinking patterns."

MyDrugFreeWorld Launched!

CAAT is proud to announce the launch of our youth website - MyDrugFreeWorld.com

We hope that parents and educators find DrugFreeCommunity.com a good resource for youth drug prevention in Westminster, but we also wanted an online place for students to visit.

We encourage you to visit the website with your child/student and see what kind of things we are promoting. At the moment we are advertising our 19th Annual Youth Conference coming up in November of this year. If you ever wanted to know more about the conference your youth are talking about this is the place! We have photos and videos of some key events as well as the little connections that are made between students and build such strong friendships that can last for years.

We are also striving to create positive presence on social networking websites such as: Facebook, Myspace, and YouTube. We believe these sites have extreme potential for students to reinforce positive relationships created through our events.

As always, please drop us a line if you have a helpful comment or questions. We are very interested in your feedback!

Prom Parent/Teen Contract

Prom season is upon us with Ranum's events on April 19 and Westminster's on May 10. At this time it is critical for parents to express their expectations of their students behavior. However, this is no one-way street and parents are reminded to make themselves available for responsible behaviors.

Informational letters were mailed out to the homes of all District 50 Juniors and Seniors.
The letter can be downloaded here.

Along with the letter a Parent/Teen Contract was included.
The contract can be downloaded here.
