Worcester Prep fifth-graders recently participated in the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program taught by Sgt. Matt Crisafulli of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office. The purpose of the D.A.R.E. program is to teach children refusal skills to avoid the temptation of drug experimentation and peer pressure. Fifth-grade teachers Mrs. Jenkins and Mrs. Shockley presented the students with their D.A.R.E. graduation certificates and T-shirts.
