Red Ribbon Week


Red Ribbon Week affords our students the opportunity to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. The tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs was instituted in 1985. This mission continues today as we continue to work towards the creation of a DRUG-FREE AMERICA!

We will be participating in “Theme Days” in an effort to get students involved and excited about living a drug-free life. Through fun activities and creative approaches to anti-drug education, Red Ribbon Week participants promote positive choices, good character, and a healthy lifestyle for children of every age. Our theme days are as follows:

MONDAY October 22nd

THEME: “COLOR ME DRUG FREE”– Students are permitted to wear sweat or athletic pants along with their favorite colored shirt. No leggings or yoga pants.
