Red Ribbon Week October 25-29th
Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. More importantly, Red Ribbon Week is nationally recognized and celebrated, helping to preserve the memory of Drug Enforcement Agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, who died at the hands of drug traffickers in Mexico while fighting the battle against illegal drugs. Special Agent Camarena dedicated his life to keeping our country and children safe. Red Ribbon Week serves as a way for students to take a stand against drugs and to make good life choices.
You are being given a BETTER TOGETHER Pencil and Ribbon. Think about the message: Stay away from drugs – Be kind to everyone – Choose friends who don’t use drugs or bully. Every time you use the pencil or see the ribbon, remember the meaning behind Red Ribbon Week. Think of the man whose life was ended because of VERY bad choices of VERY bad people. Remember that life is all about choices….aim to make the right ones and always do your best to learn from the wrong ones.
