Parent potlucks set for today at JDHS
The first of four quarterly parent potlucks at Juneau-Douglas High School will be held today in the JDHS library from 5:30-7 p.m.
April Hotchkiss, the school's drug and alcohol counselor, will provide a short overview of the services provided at the high school and answer questions about communicating and responding to teens regarding drugs and alcohol.
School climate is a top priority of the JDHS Parent Group and Site Council this year and is a component of the improvement plan being developed as part of the high school's 10-year accreditation review.
The JDHS Parent Group holds regular noontime discussions the second Thursday of each month in the school library. All parents and guardians of JDHS students are welcome.
