Cottonwood Police Officer Terry Cochran recently spent time in the classrooms at Prairie Elementary School during Red Ribbon Week.  Officer Cochran talked to the children about good drugs and bad drugs and how to stay drug free.  He talked about drugs that are legal and illegal.  He asked the children what they would do in different instances such as if they found drug related items on the playground or if someone tried to offer something unsafe to them.  Officer Cochran spoke to the children about staying safe on Halloween night and how important it is to have their parents check the candy they collect while trick-or-treating. 
Officer Cochran also spoke to the children about strangers and what to do if they got lost in a store. The children enjoyed having Officer Cochran visit their classrooms and they learned a lot about staying safe!

Using creativity and reading to send a drug free message, Mrs. Remacle’s English I students went to the elementary school on Friday, October 26, to share their story books with the younger students.  Several of the books had professional looks to them by laminating the pages (thank you, Mrs. Wimer), using different materials for the covers, and being consistent with fonts and graphics.  The main goal of the project is that the high school students will take the time to really think about what it would take to send a drug free message to younger persons, and then share that message with them.  The elementary students loved the books, and the high school students realized what a huge impact their presence has on these young students.  They realized that they were role models and didn’t even know it! In the top photo Sheri Schumacher, Dani Cochran and Ryan Dalgliesh read to Mrs. Schumacher’s first grade class. In the middle photo Mitch Jungert, Kris Banning, DJ Walker and Silas Whitely read to Mrs. Riggers’ third grade class last Friday. In the bottom photo Meaghan Bruner and Kendra Dinning finish reading their book to Mrs. Richardson’s second grade class.
