Nikiski fifth-graders become D.A.R.E. graduates

On April 10, Nikiski North Star Elementary fifth-graders from Ms. Matson’s, Mr. Floyd’s, and Ms. Barnes’ classes successfully completed the D.A.R.E. program. These students joined the many other students who promised to resist drugs and alcohol, as well as make good life decisions. The commitment shown by these children is something to be proud of.

I would like thank the principal and staff at Nikiski North Star Elementary for allowing the time to present the D.A.R.E. program. This worthwhile instruction would not be possible without the continued financial support from the Kenai Elks. Year after year, without hesitation this amazing organization provides the funding necessary to purchase D.A.R.E. program supplies. I sincerely appreciate their help!
