Surviving the Teenage Years
PTA Council and HC Drug Free have put together a series of fliers containing practical tips and information for parents of teens from the Howard County Health Department and other government agencies.  Read them here.

Purposes of the PTA
  • To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community and place of worship.
  • To raise the standards of home life.
  • To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth.
  • To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth.
  • To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, social and spiritual education.
