Hailey's D.A.R.E Graduation

Today was Hailey's 5th grade D.A.R.E graduation. She has been learning about Drugs, Alcohol and Violence prevention for about two weeks now at school. During the process, she would come home every day with a new stat or thing she'd learned that day. She was also required to write a one page essay on what she learned. She took it very seriously and wrote a great one! I am grateful for all the information they were taught! What an amazing program.

For the graduation, the parents were invited to watch their child receive there grad certificate and T-shirt after listening to a few of the kid's essays. They also listened to encouragement from the captains of the Bingham Football team who told them why they should stay drug free! Then they all signed each others T-shirts and got signatures from the football players and Officer Campbell. I hope this will be a memorable experience that she will remember for years to come.

What a great program! I hope Cash is able to do something like that when he is older!

I'm glad Haily graduated from D.A.R.E. Now you won't ever have to worry :) She is so cute and so grown up I can't believe it.
