Children at Mid-Prairie Elementary schools will continue their drug and bullying education this year. Counselor at Mid-Prairie Schools, Nora Kehoe, says that kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade will receive 10 weeks of guidance.

5 weeks will focus on violence prevention, the other 5 focusing on drug prevention. Kehoe shares that each year of education builds on what was covered the year before.

The classes give students problem solving strategies and skills to help them avoid or deal with drugs and bullying.
