Ascension of Our Lord fifth-graders recently graduated from the D.A.R.E. or Drug Abuse Resistance Education program. The 17-week program taught the students how to recognize and resist pressures to experiment with alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and other drugs. In addition, lessons were taught on how to deal with and avoid bullying. The students’ final evaluation was an essay contest to demonstrate what they learned in the program. Winners for Ascension of Our Lord School were Shane Jacob and Emily Ronnenburg.
