Hello Everyone,

Next week is Red Ribbon Week (Oct. 23-27). The theme is “Be All You Can Be, Be Drug-Free.”

Here is the plan:

Mon.: “Shade out Drugs!”- Students can wear their favorite shades. Bracelets will be in your boxes to hand out to students to wear for the week. Students are encouraged to wear the bracelets all week long. Student Council members and I will walk the halls during class changes and students who are participating in the daily theme & wearing their bracelet could be rewarded with treats/prizes.

Tues.: “Sock It to Drugs!”- Students can wear their craziest socks. “Be All You Can Be, Drug Free” pencils will be in your boxes to hand out to students.

Wed.: “Team Up Against Drugs”- Students should wear their favorite college/sports attire to show they are focused on their goals, not drugs. Suckers with drug-free messages for each student will be in your boxes.

Thurs.: “Drugs Are Tacky”- Students should wear their tackiest outfit in support of leading a drug-free life. Ribbons with a drug-free message for each student will be in your boxes.
