On August 2, 2012, the SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Club of Johnson County was host for a back-to-school bash pool party for all high school students of JCHS. For the low cost of $5, students could swim from 6-9pm and partake of a meal with a drink. Menu items included a hot dog, chips, and a drink or nachos-n-cheese and a drink. It was a great way to kick-off going back to school and the end of summer. The music was great and everyone got to hang out with their friends. This event not only offered students a great time, but also was a fundraiser for SADD.
SADD of Johnson County actively works to provide drug-free alternative activities to Johnson County middle and high school students. One activity is the 5th Quarter Dances offered for all JCHS students after each home football game. Your support for these activities through donations of money or supplies, participation through chaperoning an event upon approval of background checks, and/or support of fundraisers allows for leadership trainings for SADD members, events/activities, and much more for Johnson County youth.
Thank you to everyone that came and supported the club. A special thank you goes to all who worked the event through bringing donated items, those who were lifeguards, those who chaperoned (Sherry Stanley, Sherri Israel, and Deana Miller), Security officer (Shawn Brown), and all who prepared the food and brought the music (SADD members). It was lots of fun!
