Help teens make healthy choices

Join the San Ramon Valley High School PTSA Healthy Choices Team of Empowered Parents and an Involved Community (EPIC) for an insightful and thought-provoking evening at the special advance previewing of the documentary, "Slipping Behind," with producer/director Vicki Abeles. The Family Night will take place at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 3, at the SRV High School Commons.

"Slipping Behind" is a groundbreaking short documentary film that examines the price being paid by today's students and families for the achievement-obsessed way of life that permeates American education and culture, said organizers. The film examines the cost to our future resulting from producing a generation of students lacking the education and skills that will be most needed to thrive in the 21st century.

Parents and students are encouraged to attend together to discuss, along with school counselors and school distirct personnel, the issues presented in the documentary. Pre-registration is requested at
