PTA Meeting - Friday 11/16 9:30 am
Please join us for the next PTA Meeting Friday, November 16 at 9:30 am.
Be SMART Presentation
Directly after the November 16th PTA meeting, there will be a short presentation that focuses on children, guns and safety. This presentation will provide concrete things you can do to keep children safe from unintentional gun violence. The discussion talks about safe storage methods, how to model responsible behavior around guns, and asking about unsecured guns in places your children visit. This is a welcoming conversation for any adult. More information about Be SMART can be found here.
