Dear Parents/Guardians,

On the morning of Wednesday, October 3, the 10th grade students from our school district will be attending the 13th annual P.A.R.T.Y. (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth) program at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center. If you would not like your child to attend you will need to complete and return the form below and return it to the office by Monday, October 2. (Sophomore classes will not meet that morning and any students who opt out will be assigned to a study hall instead.)

The P.A.R.T.Y. at the P.A.C. Program is being provided through a grant from the Appleton Medical Center Foundation and Theda Clark Medical Center Foundation. The P.A.R.T.Y. program was initiated at Theda Clark Medical Center to help students realize the consequences of risk taking behavior and to help empower students to make wise choices.

The mission of the P.A.R.T.Y. program is to promote injury prevention through reality education, enabling youth to recognize risk and make informed choices about behaviors. The P.A.R.T.Y. at the P.A.C. program objective is to improve the health and safety of teenagers through a high-energy, high impact program.

The schedule for the day promises to be high energy, high impact, and very educational. As you know, our students can be exposed to many risky behaviors every day. Through the program, students will be educated about the perils of risk-taking behavior and the consequences.

The tentative schedule for the day is as follows:

• High impact opening

• Student performances portraying the potential effects of alcohol, drugs, and texting

• Trauma doctors describing some of their experiences

• Trauma survivors telling their stories

• Spinal cord injury survivors relating their experiences

This program promises to provide for an eventful and enlightening experience for all students. As you know our young people can be exposed to many risks and it is our responsibility to provide them with information that will assist them in making good decisions about their behavior.
