Congratulations to the Chamberlin School 5th graders who recently graduated from the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E) program. In partnership with the South Burlington Police Department, School Resource Officer Lindsay Wilson taught weekly D.A.R.E. lessons to the entire 5th grade class.
Students learned about making good decisions through a specific model that they practiced during their D.A.R.E. sessions. They also role-played and used their D.A.R.E. workbooks to practice utilizing these skills in situations that include drugs, alcohol, bullying, harassment and peer pressure. As a compilation, each student wrote an essay about what they learned in the D.A.R.E. program.
By participating in D.A.R.E., Chamberlin School hopes that their students will have a foundation for good decision-making throughout all areas of their lives.
