Red Ribbon Week 10/24-29

October 20, 2016

 

Next week is Red Ribbon Week, a nation-wide effort to educate students about the dangers of drugs. Sponsored by the National Family Partnership, Red Ribbon Week has been observed for three decades. 

 

"Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction cause by drugs in America. In 1988, NFP sponsored the first National Red Ribbon Celebration. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities."

 

This year's theme is Y.O.L.O: Be Drug Free. 

Each day next week there will be special uniform days to bring awareness to this week-long observance.

 

Monday, October 24- All Home teams will enter a Door Decorating OR poster Contest and win breakfast for the entire class!  Students will also sign the Red Ribbon pledge.
