Red Ribbon Week 2019
This year our school will be observing Red Ribbon Week October 28 – November 1. The national theme is “Send a Message: Be Drug Free”. We have a fun assembly on that Tuesday where Omegaman and Friends will teach us how everyone can be a H.E.R.O.-Help Everyone Respect Others and how to be our best by staying away from drugs. Be on the lookout for Parent Talking Points that will be included in Tuesday Newsday communications to reinforce the messages received at school.

NFP provides drug awareness by sponsoring the annual National Red Ribbon Campaign™. Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. 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. In 1988, NFP sponsored the first National Red Ribbon Celebration. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities.
