“No First Time” Presentation

On May 29, students in grades 7 and 8 from both Nissitissit and Hawthorne Brook Middle Schools will be attending the presentation, “No First Time.” The presentation will be in the NMS Auditorium at 9:30 a.m. “No First Time” is a 45 minute presentation designed to educate young people on the danger of experimenting with drugs and engaging in risky behavior. More information can be found here: http://evangfoundation.org/. An opt-out form will be going home to parents. However, we wanted to give you plenty of time to learn more about the presentation.  Research shows that adolescents are trying drugs as young as the age of 13. The consequences can be devastating as the brain isn’t fully developed until the age of 20. The effect is especially detrimental in opioid addiction. This presentation aims to educate youth to make the right decision: Do not pick up, ever! Because… There is NO FIRST TIME! Thank you to NM Cares, for sponsoring this presentation.
