Recently, J and K, along with their classmates, graduated from the 5th grade D.A.R.E. program at school. The school and local police department teamed up to host a small ceremony to celebrate the completion of the program. The principal and the DARE officer spoke to the class, the students received certificates, t-shirts, and a few students read their DARE essays to the class.
I think this program is so important and, like most mothers, I pray that my kids will make the right decisions and follow the advice learned in DARE and "resist" the peer pressure that sometimes exists today. I am proud of my kids and the essays they wrote about DARE! Feel free to pray along with me!!
