RMS Special Announcement
Wednesday, November 5 2014

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Good morning! I apologize for the extra email this week. I just received this announcement from our Circle Up! group and wanted to make sure that the RMS community was aware of this opportunity.

+All School/Community Events 

-Thursday, November 6, 6:00-8:00PM: Circle Up! is a parent-motivated community partnership working to ensure our Hanover/Norwich area community supports safe and healthy development for our children, including reducing the likelihood that they will be hurt by alcohol and other drug misuse.  We believe all parts of our community must work together to establish, monitor, and reinforce healthy norms and behaviors, and work to reduce teen access to alcohol, marijuana, unused medications, and other drugs.  On Thursday November 6, 2014 from 6pm to 8pm, Circle Up! is holding a community forum on Challenging Conversations in the Porter Community Room at the Montshire Museum in Norwich, VT.   During the evening we will discuss how to initiate conversations about youth substance use, mental health concerns, relationship violence, and the pressure to succeed. We will use case studies to identify barriers and solutions with facilitation led by experts in our community including Megan Call, Steve Chapman, Richard Crandall, Barbara Farnsworth, Diane Guarino, Bill Hudenko, Jane Masters, Kate Rohdenburg, Gus Ventura, Lyndsay Porreca, and Caitlin Barthelmes.  We hope to see you there! Circle Up!
