Farmington Elementary 6th graders’ DARE essays praised, 4 recognized for excellent writing | News
GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Graves County Schools Resource Officer John Cavin poses with Farmington Elementary School sixth graders, from left, McKenzie Hardison, Caitlyn Beane, Kayce Newsome, and Karah Cantrell.
He selected the four to be honored for the quality of the essays they wrote upon completion of the DARE program. Each student is asked to relate his or her own life and outlook to the content covered in the previous ten weeks of class. Those classes are designed to inform students of the dangers of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs and to help them develop tools to withstand peer pressure as they move from their elementary school into middle and high schools, college, and adult life.
Cavin told the class all of the essays were well-written and displayed understanding and substance, indicating the students really learned and embraced the content. Drug Abuse Resistance Education are the words that comprise the acronym DARE.
