Our children are faced with various challenges each day. Often times, they don’t know how to get themselves out of difficult situations, such as peer pressure from their friends. Research shows that young people who learn to say “NO” to harmful drugs are less likely to be associated with crime, delinquency and other destructive behaviors. Please partner with us by allowing your children to participate in our theme days as we teach our students to live drug free, healthy lives.
