American Drug and Alcohol survey to be conducted

On March 31, students from grades 7-12 will be participating in the American Drug and Alcohol Survey in cooperation with the Tri-Ethnic Center of Colorado State University.

The funding for the administration of the survey comes from a federal grant awarded to the Tri-Ethnic Center, which allows the survey to be conducted at no cost to the school. Participation in the ADAS is voluntary. Parents that wish to withdraw their child from participation may do so by contacting Principal Wendy Templin at 835-5210.

In addition, a copy of the survey is available at the school for parents who would like to review it.

Blackduck High School believes that the participation in this survey will assist the school in planning, funding and evaluating drug and alcohol prevention programs.

Hello readers, welcome to another edition of the Drake Times.

Wow! March went by fast. This month has been March Madness, the faculty is trying to get the kids excited for the upcoming MCA's in April so they devised this March Madness plan.

Each grade elects captains for each section so there are four captains for each grade. The captains have to be fir mentally and physically for they have to undergo tests both mental and physical. Also as a more fun reward each grade competes for the top seed to compete against the faculty in a game of dodge ball March 31. The grades competing for the top seed right now are the freshman and the seniors.

The band left Wednesday for DC. They will get back March 30. When they get back, they will compete in Large Group Contest for both Choir and Band at BSU. Good luck to both groups.
