Colusa County Students Graduate D.A.R.E. Program

[slideshow_deploy id=’69117′]

During the week of January 26, 2015, a total of 87 students completed the 10 week course with a D.A.R.E. Culmination Ceremony the following schools: Our Lady of Lourdes, Maxwell Elementary School, Princeton Elementary School and Grand Island Elementary School.

D.A.R.E., DRUG ABUSE RESISTANCE EDUCATION, was founded in 1983 by the Los Angeles Police Department and is being implemented in 75 percent of our nation’s school districts and in more than 43 countries. The Colusa County Sheriff’s Office began introducing the D.A.R.E. program into the Colusa County Schools in 1988.

D.A.R.E. is a collaborative program which law enforcement and schools work together to educate students about their personal and social consequences of substance abuse and violence. D.A.R.E.’s mission is to give students the tools to enable them to avoid negative influences and instead, allow them to focus on their strengths and potentials. While establishing positive relationships between students, law enforcement, teachers, parents and community leaders, students are given facts and current information about the harmful effects of tobacco, alcohol and other harmful drugs.

Beginning February 10, 2015, the spring session of D.A.R.E. will include 220 students from Arbuckle Elementary School and Egling Middle School. The tentative Culmination Ceremony for this ession is May 21, 2015 and May 22, 2015 respectively. The Colusa County Sheriff’s Office thanks the teachers and principals for allowing the sheriff’s office to teach D.A.R.E. to their classes.
