Red Ribbon Week 2018-2019

October 22-26, 2018


We will be helping our students make commitments NOT to use drugs. Each student will get a red ribbon bracelet to wear all week that tells everyone they choose to say "NO!" to drugs and alcohol. Here are our themes for the week. Please allow your child to participate and take a stand against drugs.

       Monday - Wear red (love yourself and be drug free)

       Tuesday – Wear camo (be all you can be-be drug free)

       Wednesday - Wear orange (unity day-united we stand against drugs and bullying)

       Thursday - Wear pajamas (follow your dreams, be drug free)

       Friday - Wear your favorite sports team OR Kocurek shirt (my team is drug free)


Please take this opportunity to talk with your children about the dangers of drugs and the importance of saying "NO!" to drugs.


What is Red Ribbon Week?  It is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against substance abuse. Show your personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle through the symbol of the Red Ribbon, October 22rd-26th.


Why? The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign is to present a unified and visible committment towards the creation of a DRUG-FREE AMERICA.


Who? National Family Partnership is the sponsor of the National Red Ribbon Week Celebration. We are helping citizens across the state come together to keep children, families and communities safe, healthy and drug-free, through parent training, networking and sponsoring the National Red Ribbon Campaign.
