DSF Announcements and News

 

 


The Freeman PTSA is happy to announce this program in January for parents and students interesting in knowing more about the college application process.

 

The College Edge: A Program on Navigating the Journey to College

Tuesday, January 9 at 6:30 pm in the DSF Library

Reserve the evening of January 9th at 6:30 pm to learn more about the "secrets" of how students can navigate successfully their journey to college. Gather with other parents and listen as Julie Bruner shares her proven formula that promises to demystify and simplify the whole college experience. Julie is the co-founder of the college program for Maggie L. Walker Governor's School where she worked as the College Counselor for 14 years and most recently served Trinity Episcopal School as the Director of College Guidance for the past 10 years. She now is enjoying working with students as an independent college counselor. With over 28 years working in the community as a counselor, this has been her favorite role. Julie has written college planners for juniors and seniors as well as college articles for Richmond Parents Magazine. For the last 10 years, she has spoken to numerous school communities including Freeman, and offered the College Edge, a program in which she provides college application and essay instruction to rising seniors.

 Speaker: Julie Bruner, College Counselor

 Parent Information: Drug Use warning Signs

 Soon our students will be out of school with idle time on their hands.  If parents are working, children - young and old - spend more time unsupervised, looking for something to do, right or wrong.  Now is the time to get unneeded and unused medications out of your house and out of your medicine cabinet.  Anyone who reads the paper, follows the news online or watches news on TV knows what a problem prescription drug abuse is and how it can be a gateway to heroin and other drugs.  We are losing far too many young people to this horrible epidemic.

 
Given this situation, Bremo Pharmacy is doing its part to get unneeded or unused medications out of people's homes and medicine cabinets.  As a service to the community, we have installed a permanent Drug Take back box in our pharmacy at 2024 Staples Mill Road. 
 
You need not wait for the once a year Drug Take back day.  Our Drug Take back box is available for the public's use anytime our pharmacy is open:  Monday - Friday 9:00am - 6:00pm and Saturday 9:00am - 1:00pm.  There is no charge, there is no catch - it is truly a community service to get unneeded and unused medications out of our home and out of the hands of our children - young and old.
