STAFF REPORT

A program aimed at helping parents identify signs that their child is using drugs as well as offering Internet awareness tips will be held for the second consecutive year at McConnellsburg Middle/High School next Thursday evening.

"You think you know ... but you have no idea" will be held on March 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for parents and guardians of middle and high school students enrolled at the Central Fulton School District. The program is jointly offered by the middle/ high school Student Assistance Team and Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD).

According to middle/high school guidance counselor Shelly McMullen, event topics for the annual event include a teen scene investigation, where parents will be asked to put their investigative skills to the test by entering a mock bedroom to identify signs that the teen is using or experimenting with drugs.

Officials from the Fulton County Employment & Training will be on hand to provide information related to tips and tricks for interviewing, resume writing and how to enroll on CareerLink to search for employment. Various tips and tricks for parents on cyber/Internet awareness will be offered for parents wanting to learn the online lingo and educate their child about Internet safety.

Anyone wishing to attend this informative session is asked to call the middle/high school guidance office at 717-485-3195 to register.
