      SYLVANIA - Sylvania's Parent University, a part of the Screven County Community Collaborative, will hold its monthly meeting Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
      Thursday's meeting is titled Drug Awareness, said Whitney Rountree secretary with the Collaborative.
Lt. Tony Taylor from the Sylvania Police Department will teach a class called "Introduction to Teen Drug Trends."
      The class is intended to give parents an idea of what to look for as signs of drug use in their children, said Taylor, other than visible signs that may be easy to spot.
      Taylor plans to illustrate for parents additional warning signs, preventative measures to keep children from getting involved in drugs, and ways to stop them if they already have, he said.
      A Family Financial Planning class will also be led Thursday by Rachel Owens Thompson, financial center leader with BB&T bank of Sylvania.
      Since the tech bus will not be available Thursday night, said Rountree, a movie and popcorn will be provided for the kids. Pizza will be served following the classes, she said.
       Thursday's meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the former Performance Learning Center on Pine Street in Sylvania.
