3rd Grade Submission Form

March 2017

Dear Principal:

The Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey (PDFNJ) is pleased to offer your school a free age appropriate tool for your third grade students to support your substance misuse and abuse prevention efforts.  As you can see by clicking here, PDFNJ’s Annual Third Grade Contract for a Healthy Life has been newly updated to encourage additional interaction with healthy living messages. Preventing the misuse and abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) in our schools and communities is an ongoing effort and requires education and healthy choices. 

The newly updated Third Grade Contract for a Healthy Life coloring and activity book will support your school's ongoing efforts to educate your students about the dangers of substance misuse and abuse, while providing your students with fundamental tools that will help them make positive and healthy choices. The mission and message of the program remains the same, New Jersey’s third grade students take the age appropriate pledge not to use ATOD that would be harmful to them, and their parents and school promise to support this choice.

Every New Jersey school serves a vital role in educating our state’s youth about the dangers of substance misuse and abuse. PDFNJ invites your third grade students to participate in the annual Third Grade Contract for a Healthy Life program, supported by a grant from the PSEG Foundation. You can request the “Third Grade Contract for a Healthy Life” coloring and activity book for your students below or by faxing this response form to 973.467.2188 by April 7, 2017.  This initiative is available free of charge to the first 25,000 respondents.

Information on all PDFNJ’s free substance abuse prevention programs is available at DrugFreeNJ.org. If you have any additional questions, please contact Jeannine Brown at 973.467.2100, Ext.14 or email office@drugfreenj.org

Thank you for your efforts to prevent substance misuse and abuse in New Jersey schools.

 

Sincerely,

Angelo M. Valente
