Parent Dialogue Night
A group of 15 middle school students met 2 times in March 2014 to take a look at the 2013 data from the YRBS (Youth Risk Behavior Survey).  Students discussed various strengths and concerns before narrowing it down to their top 3.  The Youth Empowerment group (YEG) then created an action plan of how to tackle the areas of concern and presented their ideas (to an audience of 75+) during a Parent Dialogue Night on March 25th.  Below are the ideas shared that night by the parents and students who attended.  Teachers too have added ideas.  The YEG Group will now move forward to begin putting some of these ideas into action.  Thank you to all who joined us for such an enlightening convervsation!  Questions about this event or the mission of the Youth Empowerment Group can be directed to Mrs. Fisher, Middle School Counselor & YEG Advisor
