Red Ribbon Week at Copopa Elementary School
Copopa Elementary School celebrated Red Ribbon Week
during the week of October 22 through October 26, 2018.
Red Ribbon Week is celebrated nationally to help everyone
remember to stay away from drugs and alcohol, and to
celebrate life by doing things we enjoy and love. Spirit days
were held every day, Monday was pajama day, Tuesday was
wear red day, Wednesday was wear a hat day, Thursday was
green and white or Raider wear day, and Friday was Twin day.
Students were able to attend a real live high school pep rally
on Thursday when football coach Jason Ward came to the
school with the marching band, cheerleaders, color guard, and
high school athletes. Coach Ward talked to students about
the Golden Rule, and how being kind and treating other people
the way you like to be treated will help make life fun and
rewarding. Students and staff enjoyed the week and will
always remember Red Ribbon Week 2018!
An Evening of the Arts!
