The SKPP Newsletter
Raising Healthy Teens is a full-time job and we hope our newsletter helps to make that job a bit easier. In each issue you’ll find expert advice on adolescent development, trends that pose risks to a teen’s health and safety, and helpful how-to information for parents, teachers and everyone in the community who works with teens.
If you have any topics you’d like to see covered in our newsletter, please let us know. Send your ideas — or comments — to SKPP Coordinator Heidi Driscoll at SKPP@sksd-ri.net. We’d love to hear from you.
