ASPIRE PARENT WORKSHOP -- WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16
Is your child struggling, frustrated, or experiencing Zoom fatigue? Don’t throw in the towel! The ASPIRE Program is happy to provide a series of parent workshops throughout the 2020-2021 school year to discuss how to provide support to your teen during this unprecedented time. You will also get the opportunity to connect with other parents from your school and others in Alameda County.
The ASPIRE (Adolescent Services Providing Inspiration, Recovery & Education) program has provided services to Willard Middle School for more than five years. The program is funded through Alameda County Behavioral Healthcare Services.The goals of the program are to prevent and reduce substance use and to improve health and wellness and school performance of the students. Last year, 97.5% of Willard students receiving services reported it helped them understand the negative effects of drugs and alcohol. Additionally, 100% of faculty surveyed reported improvement among students who participated in the program, including overall attitude, behavior, and school performance.
The Willard Update is the school's electronic newsletter, used for sending important messages from school administration and PTA to our community; the newsletters are prepared by a PTA parent volunteer (email@example.com).
