Red Ribbon Week 2020
Reported by email@example.com on 10/21/20
Red Ribbon Week October 26th - 30th
Red Ribbon Week is a national observance in memory of Enrique (Kiki) Camarena, a DEA agent and former Marine, who gave his life fighting the battle against illegal drugs. Red Ribbon Week has become a major force for raising awareness and mobilizing communities to combat alcohol, drug and tobacco abuse. The Department of Defense has officially participated in this event since 1990, with the aim to reduce drug abuse among its members and their families. Red Ribbon Week presents an opportunity for parents, educators, and communities to fight the constant battle against drugs by talking with children about the real issues around drug use and abuse.
On Monday, October 26th through Friday, October 30th, Still Middle School will be joining schools all around the country celebrating Red Ribbon Week. This year the national campaign is: Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free. By staying drug free you can impact our school and community through your positivity and bravery to staying drug-free. Help celebrate Red Ribbon Week by participating each day with our daily themes:
Monday: Spread Positivity: Do a random act of kindness (Something small can bring a big happiness to someone’s day!)
Tuesday: Be Brave: Wear a shirt from your favorite cause.
Wednesday: Living the Dream Drug-Free - Pajama Day
Thursday: Be Happy: Wear your favorite shirt or outfit (When you look good you feel good!)
Friday: Be Still Strong: Wear Red or Your Favorite Still Shirt to Show Your School Spirit
*Please note that all outfits worn for Red Ribbon Week must meet the school dress code.
