Parents PROMise a Safe Party

Since high school can be a time that students begin to engage in risk taking behaviors, Tina Riccio (mom of a SHS junior) knew it was the right time to set the tone for alcohol and substance free parties.  Substance free parties are especially important when it comes to the prom season and summer vacation right around the corner! 


The PROMise isn't just for students!  The whole community can come together and PROMise to not provide the youth here in Southington with alcohol and substances on prom night.  Below are a few of our community members who have supported the PROMise already - have you?!
