The D.A.R.E. graduation ceremony, held on January 21st, recognized outstanding 6th graders Jahari Harris, Caroline Kamerer, and William Hughes II as the top D.A.R.E. students for the 2nd quarter grading period. The top students were chosen due to the time and effort they put into making these lessons personal and sharing, not only what they learned, but how they are applying it to their lives. What really set these students apart was their ability to convey the D.A.R.E. teachings into their final essay and how D.A.R.E.’s curriculum has impacted their lives. Jahari, Caroline, and William also had excellent class participation and demonstrate good character.
All students are asked to take a pledge to stay alcohol, tobacco and drug free, to live without violence and continue to spread the knowledge of D.A.R.E. with others. Officer Blanc appreciates the work that ALL students put into the essays and enjoyed reading each and every one of them. Congratulations to all 2nd Quarter students for graduating from the D.A.R.E. program!
