ADMIRAL THEATER SCHEDULE (updated link)
Learn about drugs and alcohol and the teen brain and talking with teens about vaping
Join two special guest presenters and other Madison families to explore these questions and more at Madison’s second Parent Education Night of the school year. Parent Ed Night will take place on Thursday, January 30th at 6:30pm in the Madison library. Parent educator, Yvonne-Monique (Zick) Aviva will speak about how drugs and alcohol impact the teen brain. Special guest Lisa Davidson, Seattle Public Schools Manager of Prevention and Intervention, will talk about vaping and how to talk to your kids about it.
Our first Community Adopt-A-Street Trash Pick-Up event last October was a great success with a great mix of neighbors young and old helping to keep our Delridge neighborhood spic and span. We’ll be doing it again on Saturday, February 8, working to beautify Delridge Way SW from SW Juneau St to SW Alaska St. Trash bags, gloves, pickers, and other supplies will be provided.
This is a great family activity (as well as a great way for middle and high schoolers to get some community service time), and you can participate for as little or as much time as you have to spare.
Meet up at Youngstown Coffee Company starting at 9:30 am, and then cleanup will be between 10 am and noon. Let us know if you’ll be able to come by adding your name to this Signup Genius event.
Where: Meet at Youngstown Coffee Company starting at 9:30 am (5214 Delridge Way SW)
When: Saturday, February 8, 10 am to 12 pm
