PELHAM — Pelham Police Officer Brian Hendrie is going to the fifth graders in all four elementary schools to teach them about DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education).

The program is 10 weeks long. Officer Hendrie comes to each class once a week. In the DARE program, Officer Hendrie teaches kids how drugs affect them physically and mentally, as well as how to make good decisions and how to avoid bullying.

Another thing that kids do in the DARE Program is that they will write an essay on how they will use the lessons they learned from DARE. Officer Hendrie will decide who wrote the best essays and pick one person from each class to read theirs at DARE graduation.

The program is aimed at someday stopping students from abusing drugs that are legal like painkillers and illegal like marijuana.
