Sedalia students write about DARE

Graves County Schools Resource Officer John Cavin poses with Sedalia Elementary School sixth graders, from left Ally Brown, Kara Raley, Ashley Wyatt, and Jack Peters. He selected the four to be honored for the quality of the essays they wrote upon completion of the DARE program. Each student is asked to relate his or her own life and outlook to the content covered in the previous nine weeks of class. All then read their essays to a packed gymnasium of family and friends. Those classes are designed to inform students of the dangers of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs and to help them develop tools to withstand peer pressure as they move from their elementary school into middle and high schools, college, and adult life. Cavin told the class all of the essays were well-written and displayed understanding and substance, indicating the students really learned and embraced the content. Drug Abuse Resistance Education are the words that comprise the acronym DARE.
