Students at the St. Thomas School have learned the importance of making smart decisions and the fifth-grade students have taken a dare to remain drug free.
On Jan. 3, the 13 students in the St. Thomas School fifth grade class all passed their DARE examinations and received their diplomas during a special ceremony held at the school for parents, caregivers and family members.
The program is designed to help students avoid bad decisions including recognizing and eliminating bullying, exercising and staying drug free.
Congratulations to the graduates.
