READY Coalition Update:
Mission Possible had about 50 participants for this program geared towards Middle School Parents with three components: 1) what to look for in your child’s room, 2) how to talk to them and keep the conversation going, and 3) youth participants answered audience member’s questions.
HAZE had about 75 attendees and the focus was binge drinking with clips from the movie HAZE and a panel Q&A afterwards.
Choose to Refuse was at Arlington Science Focus school and is an excellent opportunity for 4-5 grades to hear from an athlete and then participate in learning activities around Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD).

Cultural Shifts/Wave Review and Discussion:
Kim wrapped up some discussion on the “wave work”
In my mind this work was for each of us, and the committees we work on, to see who else is working on the cultural shifts and how our work all fits in together – to break down some silos.
It was noted that we didn’t always have the same groups of people working on the waves from meeting to meeting, and not every group got to every shift, so the information collected may not be complete. Although we can’t all work on all of the shifts, when we do overlap, we want to work together. This activity will hopefully connect our work to each of the committees and vice versa.
Kim will work on a way to share the waves to keep us all aware of the cultural shifts and keep them moving in the right direction.
Sam Stebbins shared information and data on Arlington’s Pre-K students BMI numbers. Statistics show that a high rate of young children are experiencing higher numbers of obesity or at-risk for obesity. See BMI report – results.
A Pediatric Obesity Workgroup (POW) will be formed to assess who in the community is working on this issue and how we might work together to strengthen efforts. The POW will include folks from AFAC, Extension Services, DPR, APS, PTAs, and many others.
