Students at Rincon Elementary School participated in the national Kick Butts Day — cigarette butts, that is. Seventy lunch boxes were placed at the front entrance of the school to represent the 70 children who try cigarettes for the first time every day. They are also in the midst of Tar Wars, another program that educates children about the short and long term effects of tobacco use.
