An Apple a Day Summer Program

An Apple A Day© is a universal literacy-based program that helps to build and reinforce resiliency skills for substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion in children in kindergarten through 4th grade. Children will focuses on the following concepts: (1) literacy; (2) personal sense of safety; (3) development of positive friendships; (4) self-esteem, self-respect, and self-efficacy; and (5) awareness of the dangers of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. To introduce each of these concepts, AAAD uses age-appropriate trade books, writing exercises, music, hands-on activities, role-playing, and brainstorming activities that engage the children in an interactive learning process.

This program will start Monday, June 25th at 10:30am
