Our school will be having the opportunity to have country-music singer, Jared Blake speak to our students. Jared appeared on NBC’s “The Voice” (Season 1) as a semi-finalist. An assembly with a mini-concert will be held and the kids will be able to meet Jared. He will be discussing how to choose their own unique path in life, free from the use of drugs or alcohol.

Live to Be partnered with S.A.F.E. (Stop Addiction through Family Education) in 2017 to bring the program to over 100 schools. S.A.F.E. created an online place for family members to learn about addictions, treatment, and preventative information. The site offers educational material for family and educator discussions. The family-oriented site covers every aspect of what to do if a loved one is suspected or known to need help.
