Paramus Public Schools have been without the D.A.R.E (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program for the last two years but it made its return at East Brook and West Brook in 2013.
Paramus Police Detective Jimmy Teehan, is the D.A.R.E. Officer for the middle schools.
“We are fortunate to have Detective Teehan and we are grateful to the Paramus Police Department and especially Chief Ehrenberg for allowing this program to continue,” East Brook said in a release.
- The D.A.R.E. Mission: “Teaching students good decision-making skills to help them lead safe and healthy lives.”
- The D.A.R.E. Vision: “A world in which students everywhere are empowered to respect others and choose to lead lives free from violence, substance abuse, and other dangerous behaviors."
East Brook is looking forward to fun-filled events for their fifth graders and the many benefits of the D.A.R.E. Program.
