Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.)

Our D.A.R.E. program is taught to our 5th and 6th grade students. We feel that D.A.R.E. is an important tool to educate our students on the dangers of drug usage. In conjunction with the school system, we have provided D.A.R.E. education since 1992. Check out the official D.A.R.E. web site.
