This is the first year that “Too Good For Drugs” was taught to all 7th graders. These students had already been part of the program in 5th grade.
Officer Hadley, who taught the Too Good For Drugs program at IS 34, told the students, "It's been so great to teach you in 5th and now 7th grade. It's been an honor to watch you grow and learn. We are proud of you for making good decisions."
BP Oddo addressed the students about the importance of speaking up if they see a friend or loved one making bad decisions involving drugs and alcohol, "Your voice is the most important one in the mission to help those who are struggling from this epidemic."
At the end of the ceremony, students took a pledge to abstain from tobacco, alcohol and drugs.
