— Members of Students Against Substance Abuse (SASA) and Teens Against Tobacco Use (TATU) groups at Delaware Valley High School visited Shohola Elementary School in December to speak with all classes, grades K through 5.

Their presentations included making good choices, avoiding peer pressure, and, for the younger students, "stranger danger." Their presentations to the older students included the harmful effects of tobacco, marijuana, alcohol, and prescription medications that are not taken as directed by a doctor.

The feedback from the elementary school teachers was positive.

Students who attended were:

Brianna Tonnesen

Katie Gandolfo

Joclyn Irons

Emily Herald

Megan Martel

Lauren Johns

Lexie Llaurado

Taylor Moglia

Sklar U’Glay
