Today, Ask Listen Learn traveled to sunny Miami Beach, Florida to visit 460 students at Nautilus Middle School! This time, we were really excited to have Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz joining us as we educate kids about the dangers of underage drinking and choosing a healthy lifestyle.
Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz talked to the students about peer pressure and the importance of knowing what tools are available to them to say NO to underage drinking. She encouraged them to have the strength to face peer pressure and help friends to do the same.
She told the middle schoolers that they can control their own destiny, and they can do so through making smart choices to guide their paths. She then asked them to talk to their parents and friends, and take the Ask, Listen, Learn pledge to a healthy lifestyle.
It was a really special day today as we wind down our events for this school year, and as we wish Principal Bernstein all the best in her new adventures, as she retired today! Thanks again to Nautilus Middle School and Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz for a great day in hot and sunny Miami Beach. We’ll see you in the Fall for more great events at cool middle schools around the country!
