Guest Speaker Next Thursday for Students and Parents
Next Thursday, March 9, King’s High School will be hosting an expert on adolescent and early adult drug and addiction issues. Dr. Jason Kilmer from the University of Washington will be addressing the high school student body in an assembly beginning at 2:00. Dr. Kilmer speaks around the country at colleges, universities, to NCAA teams and organizations like the National Football League on issues of substance abuse.

Dr. Kilmer will also be addressing the King’s parent community at 7:00 p.m. in Schirmer Auditorium. Have you ever wondered how marijuana impacts memory and attention?  What is alcohol’s impact on sleep?  Get the answers to these and other questions as this interactive presentation considers the “Top Ten Things Parents Need to Know” in addition to what we as a community can do to support our youth.  If you want to learn more about keeping students safe and healthy as they go through school (or even get ready to enter college), this presentation is for you! I would highly encourage you to join us as we learn together about the issues our kids are facing.
