Making Healthy Choices

During this season of end-of-year dances, proms and graduation celebrations, students of Bayport-Blue Point High School are being encouraged to make healthy choices. All high school students, as well as the parents and prom dates of eleventh and twelfth-grade students, were required to attend assemblies in which Steve Chassman, Clinical Director of the Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (LICADD), presented a psycho-educational program focused on students’ behaviors and attitudes. He provided them with the knowledge needed to make better informed decisions and say no to drugs and alcohol.
Additionally, sixth-grade students of James Wilson Young Middle School were encouraged by the members of the high school’s SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) organization to write personal letters and draw pictures for the prom invitations, encouraging high school students to make healthy choices and set a good example.
