The Hazelwood School District’s Safe Schools-Healthy Students Initiative is hosting a research-based program for parents focused on preventing drug use and developing healthier relationships with their children.
Guiding Good Choices® is an interactive program for parents of children in grades 4-8 coordinated by the HSD Safe Schools-Healthy Students Initiative. An informational meeting is scheduled for October 3 from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the HSD Learning Center, located at 15955 New Halls Ferry Road. Child care will be provided.
Through Guiding Good Choices, parents can expect to learn specific strategies to help children avoid drug use, learn to set clear family guidelines on drugs and learn and practice skills to strengthen family bonds and help children develop healthy behaviors.
The Safe Schools-Healthy Students Initiative, a program grant awarded to HSD in 2008 by the U.S. Department of Education, supports the District’s efforts to create safe learning environments that promote healthy childhood development, as well as preventing youth violence and drug use.
