University Heights Elementary promotes being drug free!

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - University Heights Elementary in Jonesboro has been holding events all week for their students.

The events have been to promote being drug free.

Wednesday, a pep rally was held with guests from Nettleton High School.

Principal Cathelene Arnold says the younger you reach them, the better!

"Research says the younger you educate about drugs and the effects of drugs and alcohol the longer they stay off of it and the more educated they are. So, we think it's really important to begin opening that communication," Arnold said.

University Heights Elementary will be holding events throughout the week.
