Grim Reality Day, known as Grim Reaper Day in past years, reminds students of the devastating repercussions of driving under the influence of substances. The day is organized and run by the Teen Awareness Group (TAG), and features a speaker, activities, and statistics around the school to demonstrate how driving intoxicated can change many lives forever.
