SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Week will occur May 1–5, the week leading up to Dana Hall’s Prom. For the second year in a row, Peer Education is partnering with the Wellesley Fire Department to bring awareness to the consequences of destructive decisions.
The members of Peer Ed will share a presentation Thursday morning to Upper School students with videos and personal stories relating to distracted driving and sexual assault. There will also be posters around campus about statistics relating to distracted driving.
Also on Thursday, the Wellesley Fire Department will bring a wrecked car to campus that was part of a real crash. Firefighters will demonstrate how they extract someone from a vehicle in severe car accidents, which Peer Ed members hope will resonate with students and get them to think twice before getting in a car with someone under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
"My favorite Dana Hall memory would be the first time I ever sang the Alma Mater with my fellow classmates. That was most definitely the first time I felt like I was truly a part of something. Joining hands with my future Silver Sisters made me truly feel like I was a Dana girl."
