Brookwood Cluster Meeting
Jane Stegall, our principal, is a great supporter of Parent Corps, as is the Brookwood High School PTSA. Jane gave us an opportunity to invite the Brookwood Cluster PTSA Presidents (4 Elementary Schools and 2 Middle Schools) to join the already planned Principal's Cluster Meeting scheduled for Monday of this week, February 20, 2006. Each of the schools in our cluster participated. Our goal was to introduce Parent Corps to the school principals and the PTSA presidents by showing the 8 minute Parent Corps Video. We wanted to encourage the other schools to participate in a cooperative effort to carry the message "keep our kids drug free" to parents in our community. To further support our goal we presented a slide show using some of Ken Winters slides on drugs and the adolescent brain. The slides provided talking points for the remainder of the meeting. The vulnerability of our kids in school, at home and out with their friends was discussed along with what "next steps" we could take as a group. When the meeting ended you could feel the energy, excitement and enthusiasm. When I got home after the meeting my wife asked how it went. I replied that it felt like we left the meeting with the audience wanting more. Yes...there will be a follow-up meeting.
