Testimonials

“Kids don’t think about the long term effects. Stop now while you can. When I first heard of vaping, I thought it was safer than cigarettes but after the curriculum, I know about all the chemicals that are in an e-cigarette.”

- Anonymous 8th Grade Student, P.S. 19 Judith K. Weiss School

“What I liked about the program was it did a lot of group activities. They came up with ways to be self-reliant and get away from peer pressure.”

- Timothy Sullivan, Principal, P.S. 19 Judith K. Weiss School

“If you know what’s inside of them and it could be harmful then it’s easy to say no.”

- Rocky Simoni, 6th Grade Student, P.S. 19 Judith K. Weiss School

“During the 2018-2019 school year, PS 19 did not record a single incident into the OORS System related to vaping or the possession of e-cigs or any vaping paraphernalia.”

- Ted Czerniewski, Assistant Principal, P.S. 19 Judith K. Weiss School

“Now that I learned it’s really bad, I definitely will not do it.”

- Victoria Franciamore, 6th Grade Student, P.S. 19 Judith K. Weiss School

“This looks good to me. I am a family doc in a rural county FQHC with a School-Based Health Clinics program… This curriculum is exactly what we need. I like peer facilitators, index card activity, game of improv refusals, adult interview assignment. All good engagement tools.”

- Joe Supple, Teacher & Coach, Oceanside High School

“I didn’t know that vaping was so bad. A lot of people do it because other people do it. I would tell them to stop now that I know how bad it is.”

- Anonymous 8th Grade Student, P.S. 19 Judith K. Weiss School

“To be successful with this program a teacher must be well prepared, know their audience and make a connection with your students. Be a facilitator! Students will always respond in a positive way when you give them ownership of their own learning.”

- Maryann Moriarty, CATCH My Breath NY Ambassador
