Tustumena fifth-graders make the D.A.R.E. pledge

On April 17, Tustumena Elementary fifth-graders from Mr. Mill’s class successfully completed the D.A.R.E. program. Each of the graduates completed an essay explaining what they learned about D.A.R.E. and how to make good life decisions, including resisting drugs and alcohol.

The Soldotna Elks were kind enough to once again provide valuable funding to purchase D.A.R.E. program supplies. We really couldn’t continue providing this worthwhile instruction without their assistance. Rocky’s Café in Kasilof provided some really great pizza as a bonus to the graduates. I would encourage the community to patronize their business and thank them as I do for contributing to their community and caring about our children. I would also like to thank the principal and staff at Tustumena Elementary for giving me the opportunity to present the D.A.R.E. program.
