As parents we have a lot of questions but not always the answers regarding teen drug use. We hear things in the media and from our friends and family. But what are the facts? What is really happening in Olathe? How can I be a proactive parent? I invite you to an engaging panel discussion on Thursday, May 17th, at the Olathe East theater beginning at 7:00 p.m. I have attached an informational flyer with all the details. You will not only have an opportunity to interact with a panel of experts but also ask questions. Informed and engaged parents help children make wise decisions. Please plan to attend this special event next Thursday evening at Olathe East.
