I NORWALK POLICE CHIEF Ed Kuhl 1 We would like to thank the Norwalk Public School District, the Lakewood School Staff and Prindpal Jill Anderson in particular for another good year of part- nership and support of the Drug Abuse Resistance and Education program. We also thank the 5th grade par- ents for their support and cooperation. This year 206 5th graders completed the eight-session course spread over an eight-month period. We would also like to thank Mayor Pierce and Coach Glowgowski for providing inspiring and motivational remarks for both the students and their families. The DARE program provides stu- dents with information about the effects of drug abuse and reinforces a solid decision-making process. These skills are reinforced through a partnership with the par- ents and the school staff. We also thank our instructors, a group of experienced peace officers and teachers, Brad Criswell, Randy Spurr, Susie Sher and Jayson Spurr. I also appreciated the opportunity to step into the class- room ag n to fill in for instructors. The DARE program concludes with the students a written pledge to re iil from the use Offll CD Cover for New Release Trilk Releases Children's CD : Debbie Doo Wop and D te Dan (also known as Deb Paul of Des Moines and Dan Tri of N aiE) have gal drugs and to direct their lives in positive ways.
