Did you know that 15 percent of 7th graders and 20 percent of 8th graders in Woodbury and Bethlehem reported attending parties where their peers were drinking?

Or that 82 percent of area students help friends or neighbors for at least one hour per week?

Parents, students, educators and community members are invited to a Data Review of a recent ASAP Youth Survey taken in our area, which discovered the above statistics, and many more.

The meeting takes place Wednesday, Jan. 8, at Mitchell Elementary School, 14 School St., Woodbury, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The Developmental Assets Meeting aims to "get an in-depth look at the challenges our youth face as well as the supports and strengths our young people have to help overcome those challenges."

The event is sponsored by the Mitchell Elementary School PTO, the Central Naugatuck Valley Regional Action Council, and the ASAP Woodbury-Bethlehem Local Prevention Council.

Say What?? Where all kids involved from 7th & 8th? Who gave them permission to ask my kid personal questions? Why is Mitchell School Pto involved with Woodbury Middle school?
