Approximately 40 adults from the communities of Clinton, Madison, Haddam-Killingworth and Guilford left the Morgan School on January 17 with their eyes opened wide to the newest trends in teen substance use.
Catherine Barden, MADE’s (Madison’s substance abuse prevention coalition) coordinator, presented information on synthetic drugs, synthetic marijuana, alcohol packaging that is designed to attract youth, and prescription drug use.
Shelby Church spends nearly as much time at Morgan as does Keri Hagness, the principal! Shelby’s commitment to making her school and town great places to be is unmistakable. Shelby leads with a quiet but powerful manner that has shaped REACT, Partners in Community, and the Morgan School!
REACT’s 3rd Annual Haunted Hallways is in the development and planning stages! The theme for 2013 is “Haunted Carnival”, and REACT members have some horrifying and terror-filled ideas to scare and delight you!
The Haunted Carnival event will be held on Sunday, October 27, 2013 from 6:00-8:00 PM at the Morgan School. We do NOT suggest that children under the age of 10 attend, as the event is typically quite frightening for small children.
