Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week begins October 26. Students and staff are encouraged to show their support by participating each day:

Monday - "I have the power to be drug free" - wear your super hero shirts or Columbian "C" shirts with professional dress (no jeans)

Tuesday - "Don't get mixed up with drugs" - mismatched/mixed up clothes. Staff needs to change back into professional attire for the Parent/Teacher Conferences.

Wednesday - "I'm a jean-ius. I'm too smart for drugs." - you can wear jeans

Thursday - "Don't fall for drugs" - staff can dress up for the Fall Dress-up Parade but need to be in professional attire after the parties.
