April is Alcohol Responsibility Month, and this year, we are celebrating 20 years of Ask, Listen, Learn. Over the last two decades parents, educators, organizations, and communities have worked together to empower kids to say “YES” to a healthy lifestyle and “NO” to underage drinking.
Ask, Listen, Learn resources are ideal for starting and continuing conversations about alcohol and the negative effects of underage drinking and cannabis on their developing brains.
Teachers, as you’re settling into classroom routines and building relationships with your students and families, keep in mind that the school year is a marathon, not a sprint. Sustaining that first day of school energy for the rest of the year means working smarter, not harder and we’re here to help!
It’s time to welcome students back to school! These are exciting times! A new school year is a FRESH START for everyone, but especially kids—a blank slate to define who they are and to set goals for this new chapter. Some kids may be making the transition from elementary to middle, which can be a big step. All kids will be making new friends and connecting with peers they haven’t seen all summer, allowing for new experiences, opportunities, and choices.
