Berrien Elementary held their CHAMPS graduation on April 14, 2023. Officer Bill Woolridge has been working with BES 5th graders teaching C.H.A.M.P.S. lessons that were designed by the Georgia Sheriff’s Association and stands for Choosing Healthily Activities and Methods Promoting Safety. C.H.A.M.P.S. promotes child participation in health activities that are drug and alcohol-free, non-violent, and promote safety. Some of the course programs include Alcohol Awareness; Drug Awareness; Choices and Consequences; Positive Alternatives; Vehicle Safety; and Seat Belt Usage.
The culminating event included a graduation ceremony, picnic lunch cooked and served by the Berrien County Sherriff's Office, and static displays highlighting Berrien County's Emergency Management Services and law enforcement. Thank you to all of our community volunteers and sponsors for making this a special day for BES 5th grade students.
