  • SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions)

    Moderator: Mrs. Dillon

    Originally, the mission of the SADD chapter was to help young people say "No" to drinking and driving. Today, the mission has expanded. Students have told us that positive peer pressure, role modeling and environmental strategies can prevent other destructive decisions and set a healthier, safer course for their lives. And that is why SADD has become a peer-to-peer education, prevention, and activism organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen violence, and teen suicide. At St. Mary’s, we encourage students from all grade levels to join our group.

    SADD's mission:
    To provide students with the best prevention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, and other destructive decisions.

Each chapter has its own unique name, which is associated with some aspect of the Spanish or Portuguese culture. Each society member must be at least in 10th grade and have taken a minimum of three semesters of Spanish. He/she is required to maintain a "honor grade" or GPA, which correlates with the Society's mission of high academic achievement.
