Queen Creek High School (QCHS) recognizes substance abuse prevention education is critical. For this reason, a new High School Health and Wellness Program is underway at QCHS. The anti-drug program, which aims to help protect youth against risky behaviors and reduce the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, is funded by a federal grant recently awarded to the school through Governor Doug Ducey’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family.
To kick off the program, the community is invited to a fun and informative event this Friday evening ahead of the Queen Creek High School Homecoming football game.
WHAT: Queen Creek High School Health and Wellness Program Kick-off
WHEN: Friday, September 29, 2017
WHERE: Queen Creek High School Football Field / 22149 E. Ocotillo Rd.
Queen Creek High School will receive grant funds for the next three years. The money will be used to enhance current substance abuse prevention education efforts at the school with an overall goal of helping students develop and maintain healthy lifestyles.
The program will also offer a variety of activities designed to educate students and increase awareness about the benefits of an alcohol-free/drug-free lifestyle. Additionally, the program will provide parents and guardians with resources and tools necessary to teach young people about the consequences of alcohol/drug abuse.
Queen Creek High is one of 31 schools across six Arizona counties to receive the grant.
