Red Ribbon Week teaches students about the harmful effects of alcohol and drugs and encourages a healthy lifestyle. By wearing red ribbons and participating in school awareness activities, our students pledge to respect their lives by being drug-free. Wearing a red ribbon shows zero tolerance and a commitment to prevention. Red Ribbon Week takes place during the last week of October in schools across the nation. In the picture shown, our students put their red handprints on our "We Pledge to Respect Our Lives" banner. On Friday morning, our entire school came together to do the Drug Free Pledge and share the banner with families and staff. Students wore their red wristbands and red shirts, received bookmarks, made the handprint banner, recited the drug free pledge, and did various Red Ribbon week activities in their classrooms throughout the week!
