FMS and Guilderland Police Department partner to spread awareness during National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week
Jan. 27, 2017—Observed this past week (Jan. 23-17), National Drug and Alcohol Fact Week was launched in 2010 as an effort to clarify and spread the word about myths regarding drugs and alcohol that students may gather from social media, the internet, television or friends.
FMS students participated by creating posters in their health classes, and conversed with teachers and local police officers about the effects of drug and alcohol use.
"[National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week] is a great opportunity to empower students with the facts and effects of drug and alcohol use, so they may be more prepared to make responsible and informed decisions, and to encourage others to do the same, said Officer Hanzlik.
Hanzlik, along with Officers Jones and Stallmer visited FMS on Friday. The officers came armed with information, stickers and pamphlets, and much to the delight of students, K-9 Rocky.
A special thanks to Officers Hanzlik, Jones, Stallmer and K-9 Rocky for their visit!
