Parent Teacher Conferences

  • As part of Parent Teacher Conferences we will be sponsoring a special educational event for parents in partnership with the Cumberland Prevention Coalition. "Hidden in Plain Sight" is an interactive presentation that allows adults to explore a teenager’s mock bedroom. As part of the program, prevention specialists & members of the Cumberland Prevention Coalition guide attendees to be able to recognize & identify drug paraphernalia, hiding places, lingo, signs & symptoms that may indicate alcohol or drug use or other risky behaviors. This knowledge can be invaluable for adults to be proactive in helping community youth. Click on the flyer tab for more information.
  • Also at parent teacher conference night in partnership with the Community Care Alliance, we will have a community resources fair and have tables set up in the lobby outside Student Management. Possible resources might be:
      • Cumberland Library-Teen Zone
