Schools represented included Adams, Eisenhower, Garfield, Madison, McKinley, and Washington, under the direction of Jillian Johnson, Madeline Schumacher, Terry Reiter, and Joshua Youngs. Congratulations on a fantastic performance, 5th graders!

Thank you to theses amazing students for reminding us all of the importance of staying tobacco and nicotine free! Go here to watch their video!
