DARE Report Last week the students learned about gang and group violence. The students learned about the negative consequences of being involved in gangs and group violence. They also learned about different techniques that they can use to avoid becoming involved.
Next week the students will review all the material that has been covered since D.A.R.E. started. The students will use this information in writing their D.A.R.E. essay which will be read out loud next week. Each student is required to write the essay about "taking a stand" against the use of alcohol and drugs. I encourage each parent to sit down with their child and help them complete their essay. It is an important step and the first step in refusing a drug offer. It is actually a "goal" that they are setting for themselves. Next week the students will read their essays out loud to their fellow peers.
