Family Time is today, Wednesday, November 20! Use this day as a reminder to create a habit of spending regular time together as a family and making connections that count.
One of the greatest gifts parents can give to their children is their time. Whether it's sharing breakfast, lunch or dinner together, research shows when families share regular meals, kids are less likely to smoke, drink or use illegal drugs.
Now in it's fifth year, Family Time is a PACT-sponsored initiative supported by the Pelham School District with no-homework nights for elementary students and a school calendar free of nighttime meetings on Family Time nights.Feel rushed to prepare dinner on your own? Make it easy and order in! Visit pelhampact.org to view take out menus from more than 15 local restaurants that support Family Time!

PACT is a community coalition encouraging youth to make healthy, safe and substance-free choices.
