SCHOOL REPORT IDIPIC’s Th!nk, Don’t Drink, Drug & Drive class was presented to 27 of Munros’ Driving Instruction students October 6th. In addition during Red Ribbon Week, our Th!nk, Don’t Drink or Drug presentation was made to 44 students of Mikki Boyer’s health classes at NWMS and to 76 students of Michael Hunting’s health classes at OHMS. Due to scheduling conflicts, the presentation will be made to CMS and LMS the first week of November.
