P-T students to take part in drug and alcohol survey No reply means consent. That's the main idea Dr. Ellen Dickson, PTHS counselor, wants to get across to parents with the approach of a drug and alcohol survey which will be given to middle and high school students. On Nov. 22, students, seventh through the 12th grades, will be taking an anonymous survey to find out the extent of drug and alcohol pmnamity.mems among the youth in our The survey to be used is called "The American Drug and Alcohol Survey." It was developed after more than 10 years of research by prevention specialists at Colorado State University who are nationally recognized for their work in the drug and alcohol field. Almost one million students have taken this survey nationwide. The information collected will be provided to the school district by grade. The survey is anonymous and no student's name will appear anywhere on this survey or in the report. This information will help school staff in the evaluation of current drug prevention programs and in planning new programs. The survey contains questions asking students about their beliefs and experiences regarding drugs and alcohol and other factors that may relate to substance use. Students will take the survey all at the same time during a regular class period. The students are not identified by name. They do not write their names or any other identifying information on the survey. The questions are standard ones that have been asked all across the country. After students have filled out the survey, the surveys will immedi- ately be boxed and shipped to Col- orado State University where the re- suits will be compiled. No one, not even school staff, will ever know how any individual responded to the survey. The survey forms will be de- stroyed once they have been entered into a computer. The staff of the project at Colorado State have also secured a Certificate of Comiden - tiality which protects all informa- tion gathered as part of this project from subpoena or other legal ac- dons. At any time, parems or stu- dints have the right to terminate par- ticipation in this survey. A letter eplaining the survey will be brought home by students. If you object to your child taking part in the survey, please sign the form and remm it to the school. Students who do not return the form will be given the survey. Parents, who have a second thought one way or the other, can still phone the school to either allow their student(s) to participate or withdraw them from the survey.

Hello Barnsdall, Berryhill, Sperry, Pawnee, Hominy, Newkirk and Hominy. The Perkins-Tryon Demons closed out their two-year hitch in Class 3A last Friday night by dropping a 12- 0 decision to Millwood on a chilly Wilhite Field. P-T will be in District 2A-5 next fall, but head coach Pat Gray is already hoisting the battle flags. "I don't think you'll see that much of a differeace in the caliber of play in the front line pl,wers," Gray said about next year's 2A foes. "The difference will come in the numbers, and not talent. ``Counting our non-district games (Beggs, Crescent and Hemessey) next fall, we will be playing six teams in the playcffs this year. "It's going to be another war. We've got to have a good cffsmsm program to get ready for it." The 1993-.football season pro- duced a 1-9 record on the field. ``Sure I had hoped we would have a better record," Gray said. "But, we improved. We were more competitive and could have won three or four more games with a few Millwood, which finishes the season 2-8, got the firl break of the finale when Terrell Weamn returned a punt 41 yard to break the scoreless deadlock.
