Thirty-one fourth graders at Freedom Elementary feeling accomplished during their D.A.R.E. graduation.

Drug Abuse Resistance Education, or D.A.R.E., is an eleven-week program that fourth-grade students across the country participate in to gain knowledge about the effects of drugs. Officer Patricia Wogerman is teaching kids the tools to stay away from drugs, violence, and other bad behaviors.

“When we teach them in fourth grade it gives us a basis when they’re starting to become more independent so if we can start educating them now when they get a little older we can reinforce that and that gives them an option between making a good decision versus making a bad decision,” said Wogerman.

Freedom students received a t-shirt as well as a graduation certificate upon completion of the D.A.R.E. program.
