Written by Dr. Taranto, principal of Canonsburg Middle School, the article Vaping and Today's Teens highlights the epidemic of e-cigarettes or vaping among today's teens. Canonsburg Middle School administration and staff are taking a proactive approach to combat this negative epidemic by teaching students about the health risks associated to vaping.

As sixth graders at the intermediate level, students learn about the dangers of nicotine and how it can impact the brain. As a parent of an intermediate student, now is the time to begin learning and discussing with your child the ramifications of vaping. As Dr. Taranto posits, "One of the most powerful teaching strategies is simply talking about it in a safe and open environment."
