S.A.D.D., or Students Against Destructive Decisions, is a club open to ninth through twelfth grade students that focuses on the importance of educating the student body about how to steer clear of using drugs, alcohol, and other harmful substances, and how to make good choices. SADD is run by faculty advisers Ms. Eye and Mrs. Wellinger, and student president James Funaro and vice president Dani Brady. Meetings are held every Thursday at 2:00 in room 121.


S.A.D.D. has been involved in a number of activities and events. To start the year, S.A.D.D. set up shop in the Commons during student lunch periods throughout Red Ribbon Week to sell red ribbons and hand out informational pamphlets about avoiding harmful actions and substances. S.A.D.D. also took part in Spooky Hallways on October 26.


Going forward, S.A.D.D. will be holding weekly bake/ hot chocolate sales in Commons on Wednesday mornings before school at 6:45 A.M.


Vice president Dani Brady encourages students to join S.A.D.D. because it is “a great club to join not only to benefit the community, but also to make new friends who share the same values as you.”
