Boo to Drugs!

Submitted by denise.taylor on Wed, 11/17/2021 - 07:22

The whole school of Spring Lake elementary decided to say boo to drugs and host a Halloween parade. On this special occasion kids from each grade dressed up in their costumes and held a parade. The school is dedicating this parade to helping kids stay drug-free throughout their entire lives. Studies show that making an impact on kids at a young age will likely influence them to grow up and abide by those same rules. This was a very fun time for the whole school and they all learned a valuable lesson.

                                      Stay away from drugs!

Every teacher choses two kids from their class to be the student of the month. All of these great, kind, kids got gift cards and a certificate. These teachers chose these kids because of their hard work, determination, kindness, and growth mindsets. These kids work very hard to ensure the well being of others.
