DARE graduation at SS. Simon & Jude School

West Chester –SS. Simon and Jude school’s fifth grade students, pictured with Officer Michael Meiswich from the Westtown East Goshen Police Department, celebrated D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Graduation on June 13.

Weekly discussions during the school year included the effects of tobacco, marijuana, and alcohol. However, D.A.R.E. is more than just drug prevention education; it teaches students good decision making skills to help them avoid high-risk behavior to ensure they grow up healthy, safe, and secure.

Additional topics included: Addiction, Role Play, Self Esteem, Decision Making, and Peer Pressure. Each student received a Certificate of Achievement and a “D.A.R.E. To Resist Drugs and Violence” Shirt during the Graduation ceremony.
