SADD Holiday Tree

Steel Valley SADD decorated a DUI Dedication Tree to help spread the word about the importance of being very mindful about NOT driving while impaired during this holiday season and always.

The tree represents data from Allegheny County from 2017.

·      The 1,083 lights on the tree represent the number of Impaired Driving crashes in 2017.

·      The 22 gold ornaments represent the number of Impaired Driving fatalities in 2017.

·      The 124 red bows represent the number of Impaired Driving crashes during the holiday season in     2017.

·      Thankfully, there are no red ornaments on the tree which would represent the number of Impaired Driving fatalities during the holiday season in 2017.

 

Seven Springs

Member of Steel Valley SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) joined approximately 1000 other SADD students from Pennsylvania at the PA SADD Conference at Seven Springs on November 5.  The theme of the conference this year was “Empower, Engage, Mobilize, Change”.  Students listened to Keynote Speaker, Ty Sells from Youth to Youth International who spoke about the importance of leading by example instead of just by words.  The SADD students also participated in a “Think Fast” interactive competition and attended a variety of workshops.  Some of the workshops titles were: Minding Your Mind (dealing with mental health and anxiety), Marijuana Myths De-Bunked, and Text Less Live More.  The students learned a lot, got a chance to meet and brainstorm with students from other schools, and will hopefully be able to bring some valuable lessons and information back to share with their peers at Steel Valley.

SAFETY SIMulator

Steel Valley SADD brought the SAFETY SIMulator to Steel Valley on November 13. Mr. Seech’s, Mr. Catterall’s, and Mr. Seaman’s sophomore social studies classes had the opportunity to try out the SIMulator. Training on the SIMulator helps students gain confidence in their ability as a driver and develop an appreciation for safety. Inexperience is the leading cause of crashes among teen drivers and the SAFETY SIMulator is one way to gain additional experience behind the wheel. The cost of the SAFETY SIMUlator program was paid for by the Allegheny County Alcohol Highway Safety Program/DUI Pretrial Services Department.
