What are your thoughts about January’s anti-drug presentation?
“I think we really needed it. I have a lot of friends and family, who are addicted to some form of drug, who would really need to hear that. And I think it made an impact on a lot people, even if they weren’t on the outside looking like they were listening, but they really were on the inside and probably brought that home.”
Ashley Stenulson, East senior
“I thought it was a really good idea, but maybe we should have had some warning about the pictures because it was a big shock. But overall, it was really well-organized and I think it was really important and well done.”
Desiree Caswell, East senior
“I thought the assembly was an amazing message from the school. It was very inspirational and brought a tear to my eye when the guy was talking about his brother. It really made me think about my life and not to do drugs.”
Brian Lin, East freshman
“The assembly was really good. I feel like it helped people with an addiction to speak out and try to get help so they can stop. Overall, it just showed kids an awareness of drugs in our society and it is a problem and people just don’t understand.”
Jacob Cass, West junior
“There is a problem in West Bend and there is also a problem in the high school. So therefore educating our kids on what it could do to you is a really good way to get out the word and to help others that are actually doing it.”
