Red Ribbon Week
By: Ruby S.
Red Ribbon Week is one of the funnest weeks I can think of. Red Ribbon Week is a week that we remind
everyone what it takes to be drug free. We have dress up days, give presentations, and decorate doors
to advocate for a drug free life. Other schools nationwide do the same thing! This year Avery and Chloe
(who are in Leadership) have been working very hard to coordinate all of the activities for this year’s
theme, “Friends Don’t Let Friends Do Drugs”. For Red Ribbon week this year the dress up days are:
Monday: “I pledge to be drug free day.” Red, White and Blue day
Tuesday: “Say Boo to Drugs.” Costume Day
Wednesday: “Friends Don’t Let Friends Do Drugs.” Twin Day
Thursday: “Follow Your Dreams.” Pajama Day
Friday: Timber Spirit Day
Every year the theme and dress up days change. Many students work hard to plan this day. Each year,
Leadership students present on the benefits of a drug free life and do an activity to help students remember.
It has been fun to see everyone to dress up throughout the years as well as to do the activities.
Leadership also awards the spirit trophy daily to the hallway with the best participation. Check out the
spirit trophy case in the main hall to see who has won each day.
Oh, did you need reminders of the dress up days? Check out our Leadership Facebook and Instagram as
posted on the cover of this newsletter. We will share more pictures there as well.
