This year was our 12th annual Snowflake. Two hundred seventy 7th and 8th graders attended this drug prevention event. In addition, ninety high school and college students returned to help lead the small group activities. Thirty-five faculty, staff and administrators also attended. Our Snowflake has four large group presentations and five small group sessions. The program started at 8:00 AM and ended at 4:00 PM.

Our Snowflake program featured Patrick Heupel as our keynote speaker. His dynamic and humorus presentation challenged students to live their lives making positive choices and without regret.

An essential feature of our program is the warm fuzzy. Each fuzzy contains hundreds of pieces of short yarn. Throughout the day students give compliments to others and tie a piece of yarn around that person's necklace.


For our second large group presentation we invited Perfection on Wheels. This trick bicycle team not only impressed the students with their dynamic show, but also will be remembered for presenting a strong drug-free message.

The most powerful part of our program is the small group. This year we had 26 small groups lead by teachers, staff and college students. In small groups students discuss the programs, participate in group building activities and create a drug-free poster.

A highlight of the day was the Talent Celebration. In this large group session, students and staff demonstrated the results of dedication and hard work.


Snowflake could not exist without the strong support of the faculty, staff and ninety plus high school and college students who return each year to help.
