These 5th graders attended a graduation ceremony this month in the school auditorium, celebrating their completion of the D.A.R.E. program, led by the Shelter Island Police Department’s Officer Walter Richards. D.A.R.E., standing for Drug Abuse Resistance Education, helps students with the tools to avoid involvement with drugs and alcohol and has been offered on Shelter Island for many years.
