Oak Grove DARES to be Drug Free

Approximately seventy-five 5th graders from Oak Grove Elementary School in Peachtree City received certificates for recently completing the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Program.

This nationwide program deals with the consequences of drug usage and shows how students can cope with peer pressure. Taught by specially trained members of the Peachtree City Police Department and sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Peachtree City this program is presented to 5th grade classes in all of Peachtree City’s elementary schools. Each student submits an essay on what the programs means to them. One winner is selected from each class.

Pictured from the left with Officer Paul Smiley, the primary instructor, are winners Shaelyn Comiskey, Jessica Ward, Sarah Mendes, and Haley Febrey. The other picture shows the students with their certificates.
