April, 2017 Updates from the SADD Program

High School:

The group had two meetings in March to plan a hiking event as well as the plan on attending the Merrimack Valley Substance Abuse Coalition community forum at the end of the month. Two of our star SADD students, Sarah Dockham and Cori Rizzo will be on the expert panel with Ms. Rubino to discuss substance abuse prevention in the community.


We have a meeting next week and I will try to organize a group to help with rail trail clean up.


April Meeting dates:  April 6 and 27

March Activities:  ‘Kick Butts’ day -- March 15

Since we had a snow day on March 15, we celebrated Kick Butts day on March 16th.  Students decorated the glass corridor with ‘clothesline’.  Using clothespins, they hung lots of white paper T-shirts with Big Tobacco quotes discussing the importance of luring young people to purchase their products to replace older people as they ‘die off’.

Students filled out a questionnaire during lunch and we held a drawing.  The winner received a Loews movie theater and Orange Leaf gift certificate.  

April meetings: continue with our March work…

  • Continue with our informative and inspirational bulletin board.
  • Discuss plans for the next several meetings.


The focus for the month of April is alcohol awareness month. We will be doing activities to promote awareness of the dangers of alcohol and promoting facts amongst Tenney upper school. We will also continue volunteer work with backpack program. I will upload pics throughout the month.
