          IMPORTANT MEETING

          As we approach another school year and season, Evergreen Park Community High School continues to take a proactive approach to drug and alcohol education.   “Students need to hear the facts and learn how to say no, parents and experts say”  This statement comes from a CNN article that ran in January, 2016.  This year we have decided to bring in a speaker who will address the parents and students from our sports and band programs about the destructive behaviors that occur when they use drugs and alcohol.   This mandatory meeting will be held in the main gym on August 19th, from 6:00-6:30.  If you have any questions, please contact Bill Sanderson at 708-398-1233.
