Centre Avenue fourth-graders in Ms. Kirsten Miolan’s class participated in the Too Good for Drugs program with East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School social worker Amy Weissman. 

Too Good for Drugs is an evidence-based prevention program designed to teach skills for living healthy and drug-free lives. The program introduces and develops social-emotional skills for making healthy choices. It also promotes setting goals, identifying and managing emotions, building positive friendships, communicating effectively and resisting peer pressure. 

On the last day, students pledged to continue to take care of their body, make safe and healthy choices and to stay free of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs. Every student received an achievement award.
