Red Ribbon Week - October 24-28

Red Ribbon Week began in 1988 in honor of a DEA agent who was killed in the line of duty. Since then, the red ribbon has been a symbol of his memory and the fight against drugs. We celebrate Red Ribbon Week across the country, each year during the last week in October. This is a time to remind us all to say NO to drugs!


This year we will celebrate Red Ribbon Week October 24th-28th. Please join us in celebration by participating in the following activities for the week.


Monday, October 24th- “It’s Crazy to do Drugs. Get out your crazy clothes, crazy, mixed up shoes and socks, and crazy hair, for a crazy day! **We will participate in a schoolwide neighborhood walk this morning to kick off Red Ribbon Week. Students may design/decorate posters to carry during the walk.


Tuesday, October 25th- “We Mustache You to be Drug Free.” Students and teachers may wear “mustache” apparel to support being drug free.


Wednesday, October 26th- “Stay Strong Against Drugs.” It’s camo/army day! Let’s cover ourselves in camo and “Stay Strong Against Drugs.”


Thursday, October 27th- “Save the Day From Drugs.” Superheroes to the rescue! Wear your superhero attire to help “Save the Day From Drugs.”


Friday, October 28th- “Team Up Against Drugs.” As Team Austin, let’s work together to stay away from drugs! Wear your team jersey (baseball, soccer, football, cheer, dance, etc.) or your Austin spirit gear.

At Austin Elementary, we are driven to unlock the passion and cultivate the uniqueness inherent in every learner.
