Our next coffee with the principal will be September 20 on the 7th/8th grade campus and September 22 on the 6th grade site. Our guest speaker will be Sandy Logan. Along with being a VCMS 6th grade parent, Sandy is the prevention coordinator for the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence of the San Fernando Valley. Her presentation, entitled “Navigating the Tween Years” will focus on handling many of the challenges associated with parenting middle school age children. Following the coffee with the principal, Sandy will also be presenting an assembly for our students on topics including stress management, high risk behaviors, and making responsible choices. I hope to see you at this valuable presentation.
