St. Rose Elementary recently held its DARE Graduation. Fifth-grade students participated in weekly DARE lessons about decision making, tobacco, marijuana, alcohol, advertisements, inhalants, over-the-counter drugs, bullying and response styles. As a culminating activity, students were required to write a DARE essay summarizing what they learned from the program, what it means to them, and how it will affect their lives. The winners of the DARE essay contest are (left to right) Evelynne Williams, Dwayne Harris, Rachel Estrada, Brennan Jenkins and Dylan Whitted, along with Sheriff Greg Champagne and SRE DARE Officer McCarter.
