During D.A.R.E. Role Model Visits In between April 20-29, five separate groups of Munster High School students accompanied D.A.R.E. Officer James Ghrist to Eads, Elliott, Frank Hammond, St. Thomas More, and St. Paul’s Lutheran School to serve as Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) Role Models.
During these visits, the high school students (all seniors) answered questions from the students in reference to responding to negative peer pressure, reporting bullying, getting involved with positive activities and more while also receiving valuable advice for the future.
The visits to the fifth grade students is the capstone of the Munster Police Department’s 10-week core curriculum which provides information about drug prevention, bullying prevention, managing stress, using help networks, making healthy choices, and more. We greatly appreciate these high school students for making a positive impact in the lives of the 5th and 8th grade students this past month.
