MOST of our students make good decisions about drugs and alcohol. Our goal is to increase the number of youth who make healthy choices by correcting misperceptions about their peers use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Communicating accurate information and encouraging parents to establish clear rules and guidelines will cultivate even stronger positive community norms in our area.
