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.
