#EaglesHelpingEagles During Drug and Alcohol Awareness Week

Ahead of the CJ Prom on Saturday, April 16, the school is sponsoring a Drug and Alcohol Awareness Week.

"The various activities and events planned for this week are intended to start a conversation in our school community about how students and parents can respond to the real scenarios that face teens today," said school administrator Greg Mueller. "Ultimately we hope to equip our students with tools they can use to help themselves and their friends make smart, healthy decisions in all aspects of their lives."

The themes for the week are alcohol abuse, drug abuse, safe driving and teen sexual activity. Throughout the week, students will see posters in the hallways regarding the week's topics and some class work may include journaling or sodality assignments about the topics.

Events planned for the week include:

  • speaker Rich Garza talking with the junior and senior students;
  • the morning prayer associated with the day's theme; and
  • information and discussion items during all school lunches provided by guidance counselors.

Students are also encouraged to use the hashtag #EaglesHelpingEagles on social media when reflecting about the day's topic and to promote safe behavior among classmates.

The week culminates with the school-sponsored After Prom, being held at Marian Lanes in Huber Heights on Saturday, April 16 from 11 p.m. - 2 a.m.
