Principal's Message

March 24, 2023
Greetings, Taylor families!
There is nothing like a day of play to kick off a weekend! Be sure to ask your child to share the varied ways they engaged in play throughout our morning. My message this week consists of just a few dates to mark on your calendar, and I am happy to share that our D.A.R.E 5th grade program is back in action across our district! Please be sure to read the message below from our D.A.R.E Officer Jeremy Lindauer Sr. 
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend and thank you for your continued partnership.

A message from our new D.A.R.E. Officer: 
In a collaborative effort between the Spencerport School District and the Town of Ogden Police Department, D.A.R.E. has been re-introduced to 5th grade students at Bernabi, Canal View, Munn, and Taylor elementary schools.  These classes are taught by a member of the Town of Ogden Police Department, are about 45 minutes in length, and consist of 10 weekly lessons.  As your child's D.A.R.E. Officer, I would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to what we have covered and, moving forward, provide a weekly update on current lessons being taught.  
  The first three weeks consisted of instruction in the following:
  • Lesson One: Introduction to D.A.R.E. "Keepin it REAL"
  • Lesson Two: Drug information for Responsible Decision Making 
  • Lesson Three: Risk and Consequences

This week we completed Lesson Four which introduced the students to Peer Pressure.  Topics covered included, but were not limited to, defining and understanding peer pressure, recognizing the source of peer pressure, identifying ways to respond to peer pressure, and using certain decision-making models to effectively respond to peer pressure.  We also had discussions pertaining to lesson three's risks and consequences.  Each lesson is accompanied by several videos which reiterate the week's lesson.  These videos introduce the students to a group of 5
th graders from New York State who discuss and provide examples of what each weekly lesson covers.  
We begin each lesson with a review of the previous week's lesson.  We then move on to reading D.A.R.E. Box questions.  The D.A.R.E. Box is a repository for weekly questions from the class.  These questions can be about what we have discussed in class, or anything else a student would like to discuss.  As you can imagine, some of the questions provide for some very interesting conversations. 
Thank you for your support.
