Hosting Assemblies, Blowing up Balloons, Encouraging Others

On Thursday, April 26 members of Example hosted an assembly featuring Dr. Irvin Babcock, pictured on the left speaking with some parents who also attended the assembly. Dr. Irvin Babcock shared her insights and wisdom concerning the dangers of alcohol and drug use.  

Before the assembly members of Example attached balloons to cars.  The message attached to the balloons encouraged all students to not use drugs or alcohol during Prom weekend.

 Yes, students enjoyed putting balloons on cars and even blowing them up after we ran out of helium.  Based on this picture they also liked attempting to pop them and apparently Mercedes enjoyed chasing balloons around the school.  Students also enjoyed the opportunity to make a difference and boldly claim to their peers they were not going to drink or use this weekend.  Students used the week and all the various activities to encourage others to avoid alcohol and drug use this Prom weekend and every weekend.
