Red Ribbon Week!

Red Ribbon Week is traditionally celebrated the last week or so of October. The goal is to help students consider their responsibility in making healthy choices, as well as to open the dialogue between parents and students, and students and teachers (in a developmentally appropriate way) about the negative impact drugs can have on achieving your dreams. This year, we'll be celebrating Red Ribbon Week by:


  • students will be working with their art docents to make a Red Ribbon Week themed door decoration that will start in the classrooms and then migrate to the MPR for display
  • inviting our first responders to our annual Carnoween on Fri., 10/26
  • hosting a dress up spirit week (see below)
  • watch for a special surprise to come home to commemorate the week!

Red Ribbon Dress Up Week!

  • Monday, 10/29: "Sock it to Drugs" (crazy socks)
  • Tuesday, 10/30: "Too Bright for Drugs" (neon/sunglasses)
  • Wednesday, 10/31: "Say Boo to Drugs" (Halloween costumes or spirited items)
  1. Children MUST be able to use the restroom independently if they come in costume
  2. No weapons, no masks, nothing that might be scary for younger kiddos (remember we have a TK on site!)
  3. Consider sending your child in spirited items and saving the costume for the evening!
  • Thursday, 11/1: "Give Drugs the Boot" (country western day)
  • Friday, 11/2: "Put a Stop to Drugs" (wear red)
