The I.M.P.A.C.T. Coalition (Improving, Motivating Prevention Affecting Change Tomorrow) is offering a once a month after school event called “Making an IMPACT.”  The monthly activities will allow students to participate in fun, healthy and educational activities that encourage learning and socialization.  The Prevention Specialist from the Piatt County Mental Health Center will be leading the monthly group.

Each child participating will be responsible for finding his or her own transportation home.

This activity will be limited to 15 students.  Sign up will be based on a first come, first serve basis.  Additional students will be placed on a waiting list and contacted if a spot opens up, or the group is expanded.

A light snack will be offered to those participating.

Students must follow school behavior rules.  Click below to enroll your student.
