This sounds like it could be a good program, but my son thought that most of the students made a joke out of it last year at SRVHS. There were way too many classroom interruptions. And girls exaggerating by crying during the day and interrupting more class time. I would love to volunteer to participate to see for myself and draw my own conclusions.

Every 15 Minutes was a wonderful wonderful program! Thank you. I appreciated being able to volunteer in a small way to facilitate the larger amount of volunteer work and planning that took place to create this event and learning for our students. Thank you MVHS Principal Janet Terranova for supporting the program. Thank you to the grantors, to our community donors, and to the key parents Laurie, Gia, and many many dedicated others who put this together.
This program focused on the consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol (at any age!)and driving with distraction (texting, in this case).
Please remember that alcohol affects judgment and can result in tragic consequences for the user and those connected to the user whether combined with driving or whether combined with other activities (i.e. swimming, diving, skiing, simply socializing for some). Excessive use of alcohol is a problem outside the car too.
