STUDENT ALTERNATIVE ACTIVITIES

  • An important statistic was garnered from the PRIDE results; that being that our youth refrain from "questionable" activities during the school day. It is after school, evenings and weekends when the majority of these behaviors are evident. The Student Alternative Activities subcommittee concentrates its efforts on planning and implementing substance free evening and weekend activities, which will mitigate boredom and hopefully decrease alcohol and other drug abuse. It consists of students, staff and community members from Felix Festa Middle School, Clarkstown North Clarkstown South and Nanuet High Schools. In addition to planning activities, the committee is working with the Town of Clarkstown Recreation to expand activities offered by them and toward the establishment of a teen center for Clarkstown.
