Uncovering Adolescent Behaviors

On Wednesday, November 30th at 7pm, Hopkinton High School will host a special presentation to release the data received from our 2010-2011 Metro-West Adolescent Health Survey. This survey was administered to both middle and high school students last fall and we have recently received and analyzed the results. Topics such as substance abuse, mental health, physical activity, nutrition, bullying, cyber-bullying and sexual behavior are all addressed in the survey. The purpose of the presentation is to share what the data is telling us about our students’ habits, behaviors and decision-making. This data will be instrumental in determining changes in curriculum and school programs, securing funding for health and wellness related initiatives and informing us whether our current programs and interventions are having an impact.

The presentation is a collaboration between the Hopkinton Public Schools and the Hopkinton Youth Services Department. Jean Vazza (Hopkinton Youth Services) and Danielle Petrucci (Wellness Coordinator for Hopkinton Public Schools) will be the presenters for this event. We strongly encourage all parents and interested community members to attend. We are certain that the information shared will be of benefit to you and your child.
