A Key Reminder

While students in the Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School Class of 2016 prepared for the upcoming prom and graduation events, members of the Great Neck Road Elementary School Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Club created special key chains for the seniors to serve as a reminder for them to make good choices when driving.

During their meeting on April 7, club members used markers, colored pencils and stickers to decorate key chains that had a symbol of a “stop hand.” On the key chains, they wrote messages to discourage high school students from texting and driving and drinking and driving. Once the key chains were laminated, they were attached to a letter from the club, advising the recipient to be safe, make good choices and know that they are viewed as a role model.

Coordinated by SADD Club advisers Lissette Persico and Adrienne Mahoney as well as members of the prom committee, high school students will receive a letter and keychain when they purchase their ticket for prom. Some club members will have the opportunity to hand-deliver their key chains to an older sibling or family member who attends the high school.
