Before December vacation, Students from Be Above headed out to the school parking lots to tie red ribbons on cars. This red ribbon is a friendly reminder to drive sober, buckle up, ride with drivers who are sober and to stay safe today and always.
Be Above is all about being supportive, reaching out, educating others and having a voice around the importance of making awesome choices and staying above the influence.
Be Above is Edmunds Prevention Group. Be Above’s in school group meets every Tuesday during SSS, and Be Above’s after school group meets on Tuesdays, directly following the in school group. The after school group is run by the Burlington Partnership for Healthy Communities, and is part of Edmunds After School program. Any questions? Please feel free to reach out to Angela Halsted, SAP Counselor, email@example.com.
