All Canon-McMillan families are invited to a special evening Parent Council Meeting on March 21, 2023 held at the new Canon-McMillan Middle School.  Guest speaker, Dr. Greg Taranto will be speaking to parents on the influence of social media and vaping on today's children.  Mental health issues and nicotine usage are at high levels among today's children.  Parents will learn ways to help their children navigate away from the pitfalls associated with social media and vaping. We strongly urge all parents especially our elementary and middle school parents because the sooner you hear this message, the better. 

Dr. Taranto currently serves as the District's Assistant to the Superintendent for K-6 Curriculum & Instruction.  Prior to his current position, he was the middle school principal for the past 20 years.  He has spoken and written on the topic of Internet safety and social media for the past 20 years and on the topic of vaping for over 5 years.  His passion on these topics are personal as he has seen first hand the problems social media and vaping both have caused on many children's lives as a principal. He will present practical information and strategies for parents.

Following Dr. Taranto's presentation the new Canon-McMillan Middle School will be open to the community to tour the new building. Staff members will be available throughout the building to answer questions. We hope to see you there.

The February Parent Council meeting will be held February 17th at North Strabane Intermediate School at 9:30 a.m.
