Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD)
 /  Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD)

Upcoming Event:
Guest Speaker Craig Tornquist

 

On February 8, 2019 beginning at 2:08pm we welcome National Speaker, Craig Tornquist for an all-school assembly. Craig has performed stand-up comedy shows across the United States promoting safe and healthy decision-making among youth. In a Funny Thing Happened on My Way to High School, Craig uses student volunteers to demonstrate how school is the perfect place for teens to discover their own unique talents, then turn those talents into careers they will love. By sharing his childhood dream of becoming a professional comedian, Craig opens the door for students  to begin visualizing themselves two decades from now.

The program climaxes with an improv game called Talk Show, during which students take center stage…as their future selves. In the end, Craig will encourage all students to develop and pursue their own dreams. At the same time, he will challenge them to realize that the choices they make now regarding drugs, alcohol, bullying, social media, texting while driving, and seat-belt use, will directly impact their opportunities for success after graduation. Parents are welcome to attend. Special thanks to the Jennie Fund for sponsoring this event.

Students danced the night away to some lively polka, waltzes, and even a chicken dance or two! It was a great experience for all, especially those students who are considering work in nursing or the medical field. We remain grateful for the opportunity to serve our community! ...
