Class of 2016 Senior Portrait & Yearbook Information


Parent Education Presentation Video Links

Last week LHS hosted the program below and we strongly encourage you to watch it. The goal of this program was to educate parents on the following:

  • trends for teenage alcohol and drug use and how these substances affect the teenage brain

  • how the legal system addresses teenage drug and alcohol use and their parents support or tacit support of their use

Please watch these two videos and talk with other parents in your community.

 

Parents, Teens, Parties and the Law.

Click Here - Part I: Drug & Alcohol Trends and the Effects on the Teenage Brain

Maura Mooney LCSW, CADC Social Worker from Northshore University Health System talks about current drug and alcohol trends and the latest research on how substances affect the teenage brain.

Click Here - Part II: Legal Panel Reviews Landmark Deerfield Case

The Honorable Judge Christopher Stride, defense attorney Elliot Pinsel and Lake County assistant state’s attorney Ari Fisz talk about their experiences as they presided over the landmark Deerfield case where parents were held responsible for allowing alcohol at their home with tragic consequences.

 

Why should you watch these videos?

If you are the parent of a senior you should watch this because:

It is the season of prom, graduation parties and the “senior summer” before everyone heads off to college. This is a celebratory time of year where even the best of kids and parents can make decisions that have long term consequences. Seniors come back in the fall as college students who want to push the boundaries farther than ever before. Are you ready for that?

If you are the parent of a junior you should watch this because:

Alcohol and marijuana use from junior year to senior year increases significantly as seniors try to assert their independence with risk taking behavior.

If you are the parent of a freshman or a sophomore you should watch this because:

9th graders come into high school as novices- they survived their first year of high school and now they are ready to begin to assert their independence. We see a significant jump in risk taking behavior between 9th grade and 10th grade.

 

Watch these videos if you want answers to questions like:

How does marijuana or alcohol use affect the teenage brain?

What are the legal consequences of supporting teenage alcohol parties?

There is a growing national trend to legalize marijuana. How does this trend affect how we should guide our teenagers?
