Talking to your tweens and teens about drugs can be awkward and difficult for many parents. How do you start a conversation with them? What do you say? Where can parents find experts with the right information to share with teens?
SPARK is just the answer you are looking for. “Students and Parents Against Risks to Our Kids”, or SPARK, is a group led by Southlake Mayor Laura Hill. The program is sponsored by the City of Southlake and its Police Department and the Carroll Independent School District.
SPARK was created to bring awareness about tween and teen drug use. The program gives parents valuable information and provides them with the right tools and messaging to start a conversation with their children.
The next SPARK meeting will be held from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at the DPS North Training facility at 100 East Dove Road. Guest speakers will include Riley Shaw from the District Attorney’s office, Calvin Bond, Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), a narcotics detective with the Southlake Police Department, and School Resource Officers (SROs) from Carroll ISD’s middle and high schools.
The evening will be very informative and attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions. Please see the flyer for more information. We hope to see you there.
