The N.O.V.A. program has helped me in such a positive way by teaching me not to do drugs and alcohol.  It has also taught me to value things like my family.  It has taught me on how to be mature and control anger.  Things I want to avoid are things like drugs, smoking, negative people, bad movies, music, and videos.  Drugs and all those negative things can really do horrible things to your body.  Next, I value my family and my friends.  I value them because if I didn’t have them in my life, I would have a super lonely and unhappy life.  I couldn’t imagine my life without them.  They are really nice to me and they are really valuable in my life.  I value them a lot and they are supposed to be valued by lots of people.  The N.O.V.A. program is really fun and I have learned so much from things to avoid to value stuff and being mature like controlling anger and being happy like valuing stuff from your life.  We also play some games that are super fun, but we learn a lot from the games.  Its really fun because we have a fun time when we play them because most of the time we play them wrong.  Our instructor is a really great teacher and tells us everything we need to know so we can remember the things we have learned in the future.  I think that the N.O.V.A. program is super helpful to sixth graders because you get do projects and activities and while you are doing that you can learn a bunch of super helpful things for the long-run when you are older.  You should really value the things you learn at the N.O.V.A. program because it really helps you in the future because you get to remember all the helpful things from N.O.V.A. so yo can be a successful person.
