    Thanks for Supporting Red Ribbon Week

    Thanks for your support during Red Ribbon Week! We had lots of students wear red on Wednesday and even more participate in pajama day on Friday. We even had students with personalized Drug Free t-shirts! Wow! Last week we shared an article entitled Talking To Your Child About Drugs. This week we're sharing an article on How to Talk to Your Teen About Substance Use. We can prepare our children to make good decisions by equipping them with knowledge and information in advance.
