Drug Abuse Resistance Education
D.A.R.E. is a program that is a community effort supported through area businesses and residents.
D.A.R.E was started at Brookwood School in 1990,and was taught by deputies from the Sheriff's Department. In the spring of 1995 I became a D.A.R.E. instructor and taught at Brookwood during the school year 1995-1996. This made it more personal with the kids being taught by someone they see in the community and gives them someone they can trust and go to when they have to. I am currently engaged in teaching kindergarten thru 4th grade program and the 1st and 3rd grade level
The program is run solely on donations. Donations are used to purchase D.A.R.E. t-shirts, which are distributed to all students that graduate the D.A.R.E. class. Further expenses will be graduation certificates, awards for the top 3 essay winners in each class, refreshments at the graduation and promotion supplies. Genoa City area businesses are given the opportunity to donate funds or resources. In return you will receive recognition in a local newspaper in addition to the self-gratification of sponsoring the D.A.R.E. Program.
The children need the encouragement from family, peers, friends, teachers, law enforcement and businesses that this is a community that supports a drug and violence free environment.
Anyone who contributes will receive a poster to display in their window. This is a tax-deductible donation.
I will look forward to working with you and the community in a joint effort to keep the D.A.R.E. Program working. If you would like to make a donation or if you have any questions or would like to further information about the D.A.R.E. Program, please feel free to contact me through the Genoa City Police Department (262) 279-6252. I will be happy to meet with you or return your call anytime to explain the program further.
If you would like to make a donation, please make checks payable to Brookwood School D.A.R.E. Program or mail to Genoa City Police Department attention Sgt. Michael Sireno.
Thank you very much,
Sgt. Michael Sireno
