The final touch in the preparations for Drug Awareness Week was wrapping Clarke’s police car in red vinyl.
After students make the pledge, they go out to the car to sign it.
Heidi LeBrun from the Family School Association said this last addition got the kids excited.
“Did you hear the sound when (Clark) said, ‘Do you want to sign my car?'”
She said the students all gasped.
It’s bound to work. Years from now, someone’s going to offer Ethan some LSD and he’ll say “No, thank you. I signed a red vinyl shrink-wrapped police car.”
And in Vidor, Texas, elementary and special education students celebrated â€œWe are Drug Free Deep in the Heart of Texasâ€ week by seeing the principal’s horses Jake and Miss Lilly.
Not sure about the significance of the horses… maybe they were drug free?
Of course, it’s really about bribing kids to get excited about your message. “Sign this drug free pledge… Hey look! Free stuff! Hey look! A red vinyl shrink-wrapped police car! Hey look! Horsies!”
