  • Your Life Safari


    As we focus on teaching our students reading, math, and science, let’s not forget about life skills as well. 

    During the next three weeks, middle school students can create a plan for their future by attending Your Life Safari. Students learn the value of goal-setting and define their personal values while creating a treasure map or travel brochure representing their journey. The class meets at Elkridge Branch from 7:00 – 8:00 pm on Monday, November 2, 9, and 16. Registration required. Call 410.313.5088 for more information.

    Experience can be one of the best teachers.

    High school students and their families are invited to learn from teens who have “been there” at the panel discussion, Teen 2 Teen: Alcohol Drugs and All In-between. Counselors and teens who have overcome substance abuse challenges relate their experiences to help others avoid similar situations. The discussion takes place at Miller Branch from 7:00 – 8:00 pm on Tuesday, November 3. Call 410.313.1950 for more information. Co-sponsored by HC Drugfree.
