Millennium Fifth Graders Complete DARE Program

One hundred eight Millennium fifth graders celebrated their completion of the DARE Program with a pizza party and trivia competition on Wednesday May 1st. Tinley Park Police Officer London quizzed the kids on their knowledge of the topics discussed during the program. The winning class got to pick from various prizes.

D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) is a series of classroom lessons designed to minimize the power of peer pressure and bolster self-esteem. Officer London led the classes and focused on providing students with accurate information about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs and helped them develop effective violence resistance techniques. Teaching students good decision making skills and confident communication strategies are key to the program's success. Thank You Officer London!
