World No Tobacco Day Event Heralded by Parkwood High School SADD/SAVE Chapter
The SADD/SAVE Club will observe World No Tobacco Day on Tuesday, May 30, 2017. The event will occur in the Parkwood High School student center during all four lunch periods. The Club is sponsoring an informative booth depicting the dangers, stigma, and monetary/health costs of tobacco usage. That day the majority of PWHS Students will be touched by this informative potentially life-altering message. The Club has agreed unanimously to make this an annual event and urge everyone to take a moment to help themselves and others by staying aware of and away from the dangers of Tobacco and Nicotine.

On Tuesday, March 14th and Wednesday, March 15th Union County’s Career and Technical Education hosted a Career Connections day for all 8th grade students in the county. This is an annual event that is presented every year. These students had the opportunity to tour many different program areas and academies that are offered across the county at all of our high schools. Our own Parkwood students and teachers, as well as many from other high schools spent time with our 8th graders explaining and demonstrating all the diverse programs and academies that we have to offer in UCPS.
