Red Ribbon Week

Love yourself! Be drug free!

October 27th-31st

We celebrate Red Ribbon Week nationally each year in honor of Kiki Camerena who tragically lost his life in the fight against drugs. During Red Ribbon Week, teachers will be talking to Third and Fourth graders about how to say no to drugs, as well as the harmful effects that alcohol, cigarettes, marijuana, and prescription medications have on our bodies. In Kindergarten, First and Second grade, the focus will be primarily on healthy choices and habits.

Your student will come home with a red ribbon on Monday. Please encourage your student to wear their ribbons each day this week. Drawings will be held each day and students wearing ribbons will have a chance to WIN!

Our theme: A Drug Free Me Helps My Community, will be reflected in each days theme. We are hoping to help kids understand that healthy choices for our bodies and our selves help our community in a big way! Help your child give to others this week!
