The fifth grade class graduated from D.A.R.E. on Monday, January 27. The graduation took place in the cafeteria with Officer Whitaker presiding over the ceremony.
Officer Whitaker started out by giving a small speech about what the D.A.R.E. program was all about.
Next, four of the fifth grade students were chosen to read essays they had written about what D.A.R.E. meant to them.
The fifth graders also prepared a skit about what D.A.R.E. taught them and preformed it during the graduation.
The graduation ceremony followed shortly after the skit.
Fifth grader and D.A.R.E. graduate Lydia Walker answered, “D.A.R.E. helps you make choices about life for when you get older.”

On December 17, 2013, the fifth and sixth grade classes were shocked to discover that someone had swiped the popsicle-stick bridge from the middle school science classroom.
The fifth and sixth grade students grabbed their C.S.I badges and split into groups in search of the missing bridge.
Eventually, the students found the bridge hidden in the library, but they still had to figure out who took the bridge using reasoning and finger printing.
The crime was solved on January 10 when they discovered that senior Landon Rozell was the culprit.
Middle school science teacher Mrs. Dawn Simons said they started the unit in her Math Explore classes as a way to integrate science, technology, engineering, math, and communication arts.
Sixth grader Jacob Stevens said, “I liked doing the C.S.I unit because we got to pretend we were real crime scene investigators.”
Senior Landon Rozell commented, “I’d have gotten away with it too, if it hadn’t been for those meddling kids!”
Earlier this school year, high school English teacher Mr. Walker applied for a Power Up Grant from the White River Valley Electric Cooperative for about $500 to purchase copies of Shakespearean plays for use in his classroom.
Mr. Walker said Romeo and Juliet will be taught to English I, Macbeth and Taming of the Shrew will be taught to English II, and Hamlet will be taught to English III.
The books that were purchased were from Sparknote’s “No Fear” series, a side-by-side edition that has Shakespeare’s works printed on one side of the page and a paraphrase on the other. Mr. Walker said he hopes these versions will help students comprehend the plot and dialogue while still giving them an appreciation for the complexity and poetry of the original language.
Freshman Haley Farris said, “I think it’s a really good opportunity for all students to be exposed to different kinds of literature. I have personally really enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone. So far my favorite part of Romeo and Juliet has been the language and how Shakespeare includes plenty of puns and jokes.”
Alex Hicks said, “I enjoy reading Shakespeare since we get to act out all the parts. I also really enjoy all the violent parts.”
