Street Safety Patrol & D.A.R.E. Program
St. Justin School is very proud to participate in the Santa Clara City Safety Patrol Program. A member of the Santa Clara Police Department coordinates this program. The SCPD rep meets regularly with the students, trains them for duty, empowers them to do their job and recognizes their achievements publicly at assembly programs. A faculty member monitors this program on site. Students 10 years and older may participate in this program.
The D.A.R.E. Program is a 10 week program designed to help the students in fifth grade recognize and resist the pressures that may influence them to make bad decisions and experiment with tobacco, alcohol, marijuana and other drugs. They will also learn how violence is never an option for solving problems and hurts everyone. There is a graduation ceremony sponsored by the Santa Clara Police Department in March for students and parents.
