Drug Use is Life Abuse

Remember to be Giving this Thanksgiving

  In the last week of October, we celebrated Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug and violence prevention awareness program. At the beginning of the week, Red Ribbon bracelets are passed out to students to be worn throughout the week. With the bracelets, you are able to receive free goodies from fast-food places.  

   During the week, we had dress-up days to show our commitment to living without drugs. On Monday, was “Leave Drugs in the Past” day, so we dressed up as if we were someone from our favorite decade. It could range from the 1950s to the 2000s as long as drugs were left in the past! On Tuesday, we decided to “Band Against Drugs.” Students wore t-shirts of their favorite bands or even their favorite individual artists. 

   On Wednesday, “Pair Up Against Drugs” for is twin day! On twin day, you and a friend dress exactly alike in order to seem like you guys are literally twins. With the help of each other, we can encourage each other to be drug-free.

   On Thursday, it was pajama day, so we “Woke Up Drug-Free.” We wore our favorite and the most comfortable outfits to school and even got more sleep because now we didn’t need to look through our closet in the morning for an outfit. Lastly, on Friday, we chose to “Wear Red to Pledge.” On Friday, we committed to living drug-free by wearing red.
