All high school students in grades 9-12 will attend a workshop presented by members of a non-profit organization called Alumni in Recovery. Alumni in Recovery is composed of young adults who are living in recovery and abstinent from all drugs and alcohol. This wonderful organization strives to heighten awareness, hope, and resources for local communities by sharing their personal stories with addiction and how they overcame them. Students will view the workshop on Thursday, April 7th or Friday, April 8th during their P.E./Health class. Additionally, we will also be offering a parent program on this same topic on Thursday, April 7th at 6:30PM in Hurley Theater. This program is free and open to all parents in our community.

Dr. Mortimer and the Westwood Regional elementary principals visited the Responsive Classroom program at Washington School in Wyckoff this morning. Response Classroom is a social/emotional program that our District will adopt next year. It is a mechanism to create "safe, joyful, and engaging classroom and school communities for both students and teacher." Responsive Classroom "creates optimal learning conditions for students to develop the academic, social, and emotional skills needed for success in and out of school." We look forward to brining this program to our District as well.
