Rock Solid’s Choice and Consequences…new tactics for drug awareness & prevention
It started as three young kids from Spring Street International School going to Yakima for a Washington State Preventative Health Summit. It has since become a group of five called Rock Solid, with representatives from SSIS, Lopez, and one home schooler.
These five people have committed to stay drug-free and help their community make healthy choices. This year they partnered with the San Juan Island Prevention Coalition, helping bring Kenya Masala and Rachel’s Challenge to the island. Their current project is called Choice and Consequences, which is a drug education program run by an RN that shows kids the comparison between healthy and damaged organs. Still a work in progress, they are meeting with the principals of SSIS, FHMS/FHHS, and FHES to arrange the schedule of events for 6th-9th graders.
Rock Solid will be fundraising at the SJIPC fair booth and is looking for sponsors. Islander’s Bank and the SJICP have both generously agreed to help, but more money is still needed to make the program a reality.
