S.A.D.D. PARTY: A SCHOOL & COMMUNITY SUCCESS STORY
The GCS chapter of S.A.D.D. (Students Against Destructive Decisions) worked very hard to organize a Post Prom Party following the Prom on May 9th-10th. The purpose of the all night party was to provide a safe, drug and alcohol free environment for students to have fun after the prom. It was hoped that this type of event would help prevent any serious drug and alcohol related accidents from occurring after the Prom.
A variety of activities such as basketball, volleyball, hockey, ping pong, videos, and other games were available to the students. Food and drinks were available throughout the Party and prizes were awarded every 15 minutes. The party concluded at 6:00 a.m. with breakfast.
As a result of tremendous support from parents, local businesses, and local service organizations, the Party was an overwhelming success! There were 118 students that attended the Party.
S.A.D.D. Advisor Jim Tyrrell was pleased with the results. “The kids were all very well behaved, as usual. We all had lots of fun, including the chaperones. I’m always so impressed with the support of our parents and community for important functions like this. It’s a great opportunity for adults in the community to show their confidence in and concern for the students in our school. The students were very impressed and appreciative of the support.”
