"Look at Me; I'm Drug Free!" Red Ribbon Week starts Nov. 2nd

Red Ribbon Week 2009 will be held the week of November 2nd. The theme this year is “Look at Me; I’m Drug Free”. In order to make this a memorable experience, the PTA has planned a variety of daily activities for the students and their classes. We encourage parents to take time to discuss the importance of making an active choice to stay drug free. Please take time to look at the Red Ribbon Week Pledge that will be coming home soon, sign both parts of the pledge and return the student portion back to school. We will be displaying each student’s individual signed pledge at the school. Please display the home copy somewhere in your home where your child will see it often. The events planned for Red Ribbon Week are as follows:
