Highlights of Upcoming UHS Events and Happenings


For Parents

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR


ALL PARENTS

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9
YOUR PA PRESENTS

TEENS, DRUGS AND PARTIES;


WHAT YOUR KIDS WANT YOU TO KNOW
(But May Not Tell You)

Not coincidentally, this PA Forum has been scheduled prior to the year’s first all
school dance scheduled for this Saturday. All parents are urged to attend (just the
forum; not the dance unless you’re a chaperone).

Against the backdrop for the fall production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,
with its white tiles, queasy green walls and institutional lights, you’ll be treated to a
mind-stretching conversation with psychotherapist Michael Simon and adolescent
expert Charis Denison. They’ll provide you with practical tips for the preservation of
your sanity when confronting a variety of real life teen scenarios involving drugs,
alcohol, and something called “hooking up.” Our resident Psychologist and Head of
School, Dr. Michael Diamonti, also will be present to
calm your nerves if need be.
For more information on this therapeutic, mind-saving PA forum and the scenarios to
be discussed, including the “Getting a Head Start” scenario that hopefully won’t
challenge you this Saturday, please click here:

You’d be insane to miss this one!
