The Bucyrus Secondary School is excited to welcome back the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program and Crawford County Sheriff’s Deputy Chris Martin. Sixth grade students will participate in the program every Friday for twelve weeks beginning Sept. 18.
Deputy Martin instructs the course during the twelve-week period. He teaches the core D.A.R.E. curriculum to the students, which had a tremendous impact during the program’s first year back in the district.
Administrators at the Secondary School are grateful to have Deputy Martin in the building because they know that through D.A.R.E, the students are being taught skills they can use to arm themselves when faced with critical decisions that could ultimately affect them for the rest of their lives.
“The D.A.R.E. program has become a vital component in our students’ overall educational experience,” Secondary School Associate Principal Jay Dennison said. “We couldn’t be happier to have Deputy Martin back in our building teaching the invaluable lessons of the D.A.R.E. program to our students.”
