Happy SADD day at Morrin School
On Thursday February 11, Morrin School Chapter of SADD (Students against Drunk Driving) held a Valentine’s candygram sale.
SADD Alberta is a registered, non-profit, organization that had its beginnings in 1990. Their mission is to inspire and motivate young people to stand up and eliminate the number one cause of death and injury among youth... drinking and driving!
Morrin Schools Youth Wellness Worker Katie Suntjens said, “By lunchtime on Thursday February 11, the group had already sold over $240 worth of candygrams. On the back of each Valentine card, the students were able to personalize a greeting and give to their Valentine.”
On the front of the cards were several different messages specifically chosen for this age group. Two of the messages said: “I am waiting for your call, if you need a safe ride home.” and “The road to my heart starts and ends with you.”
Future events for the SADD chapter include participating in a RCMP check stop and a windup barbecue for the students, staff, RCMP and all the volunteers.
