    Good Character Counts

    By having the courage to say no to drugs you can say yes to life.  Remember the words of Leo Tolstoy:  “Our body is a machine for living.  It is organized for that; it is its nature.  Let life go on in it.”  Don’t pollute your body with harmful substances.

    Thank you and let's have a great day at Central Elementary School.
