WOODLAND PARK, NJ - All fourth grade students at Beatrice Gilmore School are participating in the Keep A Clear Mind program, which is a parent-child, take-home drug education program sponsored by the Woodland Park Municipal Alliance Against Alcoholism and Drug Abuse.
Students are given an activity book each week for four weeks along with incentives to complete the books. Students take the activity books home and do the program with their parents. This involves reading material, answering questions and completing a few fun activities. They receive a student incentive (bumper sticker, bracelet, keychain, bookmark, etc.) for showing their teacher that their parents have signed, indicating they have worked with them to complete the activity book.
Newsletters will also continue to be sent home for a few weeks after the four booklets with the intention of providing parents additional information and prompt them to continue the conversation with their children about making good health decisions and saying “no” to alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and other drugs.
