Delivered to grade 5 students in District 6, D.A.R.E teaches students about the health effects of tobacco, alcohol, and marijuana. It also teaches them about peer pressure, good decision making, bad friends and good friends, ways to get out or stay out of risky situations, and how to avoid violence.
Middle School Drug Education
Parental feedback from our D.A.R.E. program led to this initiative. It is designed to be a follow up to the grade five curriculum with a focus on other drugs such as cocaine, ecstasy, energy drinks, and prescription drugs abuse. It also deals with the effects of addiction, signs to look for, and what to do to help those suffering from addiction. Internet safety and cyber bullying was also presented.
Internet Safety Education
In addition to the grade seven lectures, our Technology Crime Unit delivers several presentations to schools, community groups, and public forums. There is a high demand for education in our area regarding this subject.
Cooking with Cops
This program is designed to teach students important life skills, teamwork, and the importance of eating healthy. Students are given the opportunity to learn to cook different recipes of their choosing throughout the year with a final year-end project to demonstrate what they have learned. This is an after-school activity held at Harry Miller Middle School.
