Congratulations to the 5th grade classes at LaFollette Elementary School and the 7th grade classes at LaFollette Middle School for graduation from the D.A.R.E. Program presented by the LaFollette Police Department. D.A.R.E.(Drug
Abuse Resistance Education) is the highly acclaimed program that gives kids the skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs, and violence.
D.A.R.E. was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles and has proven so successful that it is now being implemented in 75 percent of our nation’s school districts and in more than 52 countries around the world.
D.A.R.E. is a police officer-led series of classroom lessons that teaches children from kindergarten through 12th grade how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug and violence-free lives.
