IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- The fifth-graders at Main Street School have begun the 2014 Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) Program.
The main objective of the program is to teach the fifth- graders how to make healthy choices that are right for them. DARE Officer Erik Seman teaches children how to recognize and resist the direct and subtle pressures they will face in life.
Along the way, the fifth-graders are building a positive relationship with Seman and the Irvington Police Department that will last a lifetime.
The D.A.R.E. Program runs for five weeks and concludes with a graduation ceremony and gallery of work students will create to display their new learning.
