BIC 2017 DARE Graduation




Buffalo Island Central Elementary School held its annual 5th grade DARE Graduation on Friday, December 1, 2017. Each graduation, an essay is selected from each class, and also an overall winner of the essay contest. The class winners receive a medal and a DARE bracelet, and the overall winner receives an iPod. A student is selected by their teachers that best personifies DARE, and that student wins a DAREN the Lion. At the end of the year, Officer Jamey Carter gives the students a test, and the class with the highest average wins the class trophy. At the end of the ceremony, Officer Carter asks one of the dignitaries to pick a number, and that number corresponds to the list of students' names. That is how the winner of the bike is picked.

The winners are:
