Dare Graduation

Throughout the past 12 weeks 6th grade students from the Arcadia Public School and Holy Family Catholic School have had the opportunity to participate in DARE.

DARE stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. DARE is a program that stresses the importance of positive role models, and gives them the tools to stay drug, alcohol and violence free.

The students participating in D.A.R.E. learned not only about drugs and alcohol, but they learned about making safe and responsible choices, resistance strategies, Surgeon General Warnings, advertisements, how to respond to pressure, signs of stress and how to handle stress, confident communication and bullying.

At the end of 12 weeks, students were required to write a DARE Essay. In this essay they were to include what they learned in DARE, how it has effected them and their pledge for the future to be drug, alcohol and violence free.

The essay winner from Holy Family Catholic School was: 
Simon Haines

This year, 12 6th graders from the Holy Family Catholic School participated and successfully graduated and completed the program on Tuesday May 8, 2018.
