Albert G. Prodell Middle School students had an opportunity to understand the importance of their decisions when they took part in grade level informational assemblies presented by the Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. Lauren Navarra, a licensed social worker and LICAAD’s student assistant program coordinator, highlighted emerging drug trends, shared the negative effects of e-cigarettes and how they are produced and emphasized ways for students to put healthy coping skills in place. “In addition to a good foundation of family, friends, school, sports, hobbies and community, the assemblies served as valuable resources in educating students about topics that may be affecting their lives,” Principal Kevin Vann said. “The goal is the more information they have, the healthier decisions they will make.”
