An Alcohol Awareness Month Blog from Scholastic

What do 30,000 Health teachers and Aly Raisman have in common?

They are all encouraging our Nation’s youth to say “Yes, to a healthy lifestyle and No to Underage Drinking!”

For the third consecutive year, we are working together with Scholastic to bring the Ask Listen Learn: Kids and Alcohol Don’t Mix program to students across the nation.  Our in-classroom materials and complementary microsites for teachers, kids and parents feature Two-Time Gold Medalist and U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team Captain and Ask, Listen, Learn Superstar Aly Raisman!

30,000 5th-7th grade health teachers nationwide have received these materials designed to help them jumpstart these important conversations with students and their parents.

Alcohol Awareness Month is the perfect opportunity to remind parents that they are the number one influence in their kids’ decision to drink or not drink alcohol.  It’s also a great time for teachers to empower their students to lead a healthy lifestyle.

We can all make a difference! If you are a teacher, counselor, parent, or a volunteer in your community we invite you to check out these free resources and #JoinThe Convo!
