Topics to include bullying, social media, mental health and more
Broken Arrow Public Schools is teaming up with the district’s PTA Council to host a Parent Awareness Night, which will provide parents with helpful resources regarding their teenagers from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on April 30 at Broken Arrow High School.
Topics will include growth and development, bullying and social media, suicide prevention, drug awareness and more.
“Several of our community partners have agreed to join us and offer their expertise with our Broken Arrow parents,” BAPS Executive Director of Student Services Derek Blackburn said. “We truly hope parents will take the opportunity to learn more about issues that may be affecting their teens in one way or another.”
Due to the sensitive nature of the topics, it is recommended that only parents with students in grades 4-12 attend.
This come-and-go event is participant driven and allows parents to choose from the following sessions:
- School Nutrition Policy and FDA Recommendations for Health Kids – BAPS Child Nutrition Department
- Growth and Development/Aids Presentation – Tulsa Health Department
- Bullying and Social Media – Parent Child Center of Tulsa
- Suicide Prevention/Awareness – Family and Children’s Services
- Human Trafficking Awareness – Unlock Freedom
- Drug Awareness – Broken Arrow Police Department
- District Campus Safety and Security – BAPS Student Services
Each session will be presented three times throughout the evening, so parents will have multiple opportunities to attend.
Should you have certain concerns or questions that you’d like addressed by our community partners, you can submit them prior to April 30 by emailing ParentAwarenessNight@baschools.org.
