Graduating schools were Spring Valley, Elmwood, Plum City, Ave Maria and Malone Elementary.

Although the DARE program participates in kindergarten through fourth grade as well as fifth grade, a culmination takes place at the end of their fifth grade class. Students learn about alcohol, tobacco, peer pressure, bullying and prescription drugs, to name a few topics.

The week of Feb. 10, the DARE program will begin at the Ellsworth Middle School, Hillcrest, Prairie View, St. Joseph’s in Prescott and St. Francis in Ellsworth.

The program is led by Pierce County Sheriff’s Deputy Steve Albarado.
