Red Ribbon Week is a United States initiative of prevention and education about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. During the last week in October, students all over the country make pledges to live drug and alcohol free.
Activities will be held October 23rd – October 30th. We encourage parents to take time each day to discuss with their child the importance of making an active choice to stay drug free. In order to make Red Ribbon Week memorable, we have planned some fun activities for the students.
- #YOUMATTER “Red Ribbon Week Kick Off” - wear red .
- #YOUMATTER “Team Up Against Drugs!” – Team up with a friend and be a twin or wear your favorite team jersey or outfit.
- #YOUMATTER “Put a Cap on Drugs!” OR “Sock it to Drugs!”– wear your favorite hat or crazy socks.
- #YOUMATTER “Be a Super Hero! Tell your friends not to use drugs!”- wear your superhero t-shirt.
