John Van Arsdale’s courage and ingenuity brought our War of Independence to a thrilling conclusion as the British were to depart from America. With General George Washington, Governor Clinton and tens of thousands watching, Van Arsdale foiled the last British act of defiance on our soil. His actions brought loud cheers from the assembled throng. Listen to this wonderful piece of local and American history.

Congratulations to the 2016 D.A.R.E. Graduates!

The Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E)  Graduation was held at the Montgomery Elementary School, for the 5th grade class, on Thursday, March 31st.

It is a program taught in schools by specially trained law enforcement officers. It was created by a combined effort of educators and law enforcement personnel in Los Angeles in 1983, and rapidly expanded nationwide.

Officers are carefully chosen and must undergo stringent training to receive their certification as D.A.R.E. instructors. A common thread shared by these D.A.R.E. instructors is their dedication to the task and their commitment to provide children with the knowledge and strength to make choices they can call their very own.".

D.A.R.E. is not focused on "scare tactics," but on helping children develop important life skills in order to make good choices; skills needed to deal with the dangers of illicit and illegal drugs, including alcohol and tobacco. D.A.R.E. provides the guidance children need to make the right decisions for their health and their future.

The 10-week elementary curriculum, taught to our fifth graders, covers many topics that help students understand and deal with social pressures while strengthening their own self-image. Lessons actively involve student participation through workbook exercises, questions and answers, role playing, and group discussion. These lessons include:

  • Personal safety
  • Assertiveness
  • Use and misuse of drugs
  • Managing stress
  • Consequences of behavior
  • Media influences
  • Building self-esteem
  • Role models
  • Resisting peer pressure
  • Support systems
  • Alternatives
  • Decision-making and risk-taking


The Village of Montgomery supports the youth of our village. Congratulations to all of the 5th graders for participating and graduating from the D.A.R.E. Program!

A very special "Thank You" to Village of Montgomery Police Officer Jack Smith, who coordinates the D.A.R.E Program, and for a job well done!
