Project D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education)
This is a cooperative effort between the East Aurora Schools and the East Aurora Police Department. The program now operates in the second, fourth and sixth grades with a police officer teaching students the following: building self-esteem, managing stress, resisting peer pressure and resisting pro-drug media messages.
Officer Joseph Ferrara is East Aurora's D.A.R.E. officer.
Students also learn how to “Say No To Drugs” and why to say “No.” Now known as D.A.R.E. America, the program continues each year to build a D.A.R.E. community.
