Fifth graders at Berea are lucky to be a part of the D.A.R.E. program. Our D.A.R.E. officer, Officer Kenny, is dedicated to helping our students stay drug and violence free. The D.A.R.E. program at Berea involves classes once a week lead by Officer Kenny. During class, students learn communication skills, ways to prevent bullying, facts about alcohol and drugs, strategies for saying no, helpful hints for avoiding peer pressure and media pressure. Students also have the opportunity to form an important bond with Officer Kenny that can last them throughout their school career.
In addition to learning important information about how to say no to drugs and violence, there are wonderful programs like the DARE graduation picnic.
