The Colman-Egan T.A.T.U students sponsored their sixth annual fifth and sixth grade lock in. Teens Against Tobacco Use (TATU), is a peer-education program in which high school students are trained to teach elementary school students about the hazards of tobacco use. The lock in was held after school from 3:30 to 8:30 pm the last Friday of March.
T.A.T.U students talked to the elementary students about why they choose not to use tobacco. An assembly begins the lockin with high school students introducing themselves and an explanation of why choose not to use tobacco. Students played a variety of funny and gross games and other fun activities : fruit loop cream throw , minnow races, inflatable castle, egg pool bob, crafts and more. National Guard also contributed by bringing in a football inflatable. Students retrieved prizes, enjoyed pizza and treats. Every year, Colman-Egan freshman are given the opportunity to join T.AT.U and attend a day long workshop dealing with tobacco issues that affect young people.
