Update on Positive Student Action Assembly

Carondelet and De La Salle are joining for a Positive Student Action Assembly on Thursday, March 14. The assembly will  discuss the importance of thoughtful decision making when it comes to alcohol and drugs, caring for self and others, and the consequences of poor decisions . Freshman and sophomores will attend their assembly in the Carondelet Garaventa Center. Juniors and seniors will attend their assembly in the De La Salle Hofmann Center.  Both assemblies will feature guest speakers who will share their stories regarding the effect of alcohol on decision making and the importance of being a responsible bystander in difficult situations.  

At the junior/senior assembly, we will share (with students) the results of the pod-based nicotine device, alcohol, and marijuana use survey taken in November 2018. This sharing of the survey will serve as a focus of reflection.
