The parent committee supports parents and families to become better equipped with the knowledge and skills to keep their children healthy and safe. We do this by providing current information and resources to support mental health, chemical health, and overall student wellness. Research supports that parents are the number one influence on their children! Be an advocate for your child; become connected, support their needs, provide a healthy environment, and give them the resources they need for health, wellness and success.
