The Snowflake Workshop was held on December 2nd at the Skokie Valley Baptist Church in Wilmette for the Marie Murphy School 7th grade students. Snowflake is a all day youth/adult partnership workshop providing awareness and prevention of alcohol, tobacco and other drug use, while encouraging healthy decision-making in an active community of caring. It is also a time where students are encouraged to look at themselves and recognize their strengths as well as others’. Small group discussions were lead by Marie Murphy teachers, 8th grade Snowflake Council members, and New Trier H.S. students who formerly attended the school. There were great guest speakers throughout the day. Breakfast and lunch were provided by the Avoca Parents & Teachers Council and served by 7th grade parent volunteers.
