Pleasanton High School to present Shattered Dreams
On May 2 and 3, Safe Schools/Healthy Students and the Pleasanton Alcohol Reduction Team will present the Shattered Dreams program to all Pleasanton High School students. Shattered Dreams is an educational program that shows high school students how their dreams and those of their families and others can be shattered as a result of underage drinking and driving.
The comprehensive two-day program involves several activities that educate youth by dramatizing the problems associated with drinking and driving. On the first day, in collaboration with law enforcement, emergency medical services, and the area hospital, students will participate in a staged auto crash in the parking lot of the Performing Arts Center. Other students, representing those who die in car crashes, will leave their classrooms throughout the day to become members of the Living Dead. An assembly the following morning will include speeches made by participants, their parents, and/or a guest speaker. This program is being implemented for Pleasanton High School 9th-12th grade students only.
Their goal is to provide this program to the community as a whole by informing parents, businesses and community leaders of the event and its important message. Event organizers believe with your support, they can change the attitudes of young people and save lives.
