Red Ribbon Week


The Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week is an awareness campaign observed annually the last full week in October. We regard Red Ribbon Week as the kick off to a year of prevention in our schools and in our communities. Have your child dress to support Red Ribbon Week campaign against drugs;

October 26th: Team Up Against Drugs Day – Wear your favorite sports shirt, uniform or jersey. Students will receive Red Ribbons and be encouraged to wear them all week long.

October 27th: Friends Don’t Let Friends Do Drugs – Dress like twins with a friends and help each other make healthy choices. Students will sign “Be Drug Free” pledge certificates.

October 28th: You’d Be Crazy Not to Pledge Drug Free – Wear your craziest socks and hat. Students will decorate paper chain links to decorate the front of the school. Theme-based classroom posters are due this morning.

October 29th: I’m Too Bright to do Drugs – Wear neon clothes and sunglasses. Students participate in “Say No to Drugs” games during lunch. In the afternoon, adult volunteers are needed to help hang decorations on the front of the school for judging by BUSD.

October 30th: Say Boo to Drugs! – Wear your Halloween costume to school and change into red to support Red Ribbon Week. Before school, adult volunteers are needed to help finish decorating the front of the school. BUSD school and poster judging will be held in the morning.

We really appreciate your support!
