The following information was released by St. Irenaeus Parish School.
The sixth grade students at St. Irenaeus Parish School recently graduated from the Cypress P.A.C.E. program.

It is produced in partnership with the Cypress Police Department, the City of Cypress, and local public and private schools.
Students participated in ten weeks of lessons covering from drug and alcohol abuse, bullying, Internet safety, and gang issues.
Upon completion of the program, students wrote a two-page essay on what they learned from the program, and how they pledged to live a healthy life.
Congratulations to the P.A.C.E. graduates of St. Irenaeus Parish School!
