Red Ribbon Week Update

6th Grade Winners: Mr. Pecora's Homeroom

  RED RIBBON WEEK 2015: October 23-31

Recently, we celebrated Red Ribbon Week. Fifth and sixth grades participated in a door decorating contest to show their support for living a drug free lifestyle. During guidance lessons we discussed the history of the Red Ribbon Campaign, which began in 1985. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction cause by drugs in America. Visit the Red Ribbon Campaign website for more information.

On Monday November 16th,, seventh and eighth graders had the opportunity to view the Road Radio USA assembly geared towards preventing underage alcohol and drug use.
