Just for the Parents

Monday, Aug. 13, meeting for “New to Academy Athletics” parents/caregivers at 7:15 a.m. in the gym conference room. Just a quick chance to meet those new and prepare for what to expect in the first few weeks! Come with all the questions you think you should have the answers to! Learn where schedules are, how events are cancelled, what “night games” mean, the roles of different people on campus around athletics and academic support. It’s a whole new world in high school!

Wednesday, Aug. 15, All Sport Parents’ Night at 6:30 p.m. in the library. First, presentation of general information and introduction to the Raider Booster Club. At 7 p.m., Claudine Emerson, a social worker and substance abuse coordinator from Gorham High School, will present an open-to-all forum on the newest of drugs to target kids, vaping and juuling. Claudine has done a lot of research around the tools, tricks and issues around this newest attack on young people. Her presentation will include more basic information about the different types of “E-cigarette,” which include juuls and pods, Box Mods, and vape pens with e-juices, and how to identify each. Her presentation will be open to the public, as well.

After Claudine finishes, attendees will use classrooms in the library to meet coaches of each sport and hear directly from them.
