Clinton-Massie Elementary School students — 125 in all — completed the 10-week D.A.R.E. course with Clinton County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Wood.

They were given several scenarios during the year requiring them to solve issues using the D.A.R.E. Decision-Making Model, which includes:

Define the problem – “What is the challenge opportunity?”

Assess the problem – “What are their choices?”

Respond to the problem – “What action did you take?”

Evaluate – “Why did you think you made a good decision?”

Some topics taught were ways to deal with stress, peer pressure, risk and consequences, basics of communication and health effects of drugs.

The first-place winners of the essay contest — with each receiving a new bicycle — are Grace Adams and Austin Hurley.

Second-place winners who received Daren the Lion figures are Mackenzie Seitz and Jackson Strouth.

Thank you to: Walmart for donating the bikes; Domino’s for giving a free pizza party — 53 pizzas — for students and parents after the graduation, and they also gave each graduate a free certificate for a medium 3-topping pizza; Kroger for donating 24 cases of pop for the pizza party; and the Clinton County Antique Power Club and the Clinton-Massie PTO for their continued support of the D.A.R.E. program.
