SARANAC LAKE – After an eight-year hiatus, Saranac Lake School District has brought back the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program.

On Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 6 p.m., the fifth-grade D.A.R.E. graduation will be held in the Petrova School Auditorium.

The D.A.R.E. program has been revised using a new “keepin’ it REAL” curriculum. The ten-week long program covers the following topics: Decision Making Model, Alcohol and Tobacco Facts, Health Effects, Making Safe and Responsible Choices, Resistance Strategies, Responding to Pressure, Signs of Stress, Evaluating Your Decision, Communication Styles, Communicating Effectively, Bullying, and the My Help Network. Students are assigned to write an essay expressing their thoughts and ideas about what they learned during the D.A.R.E. program.

At the graduation, all students will be awarded certificates. The essay award winners will be announced. Essay winners will read their essays aloud and there will be a few short skits performed by the students using what they learned during D.A.R.E.

A reception with pizza and cake will follow. Everyone is invited to attend.
