This week we are celebrating the choice to be drug free. Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction cause by drugs in America. In 1988, NFP sponsored the first National Red Ribbon Celebration. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities.
Feel free to dress up this week to show your support with the following themes by day.
Monday - Put a lid on drugs; wear your favorite hat.
Tuesday - Friends don't let friends do drugs; find a friend and dress like twins.
Wednesday - Choose drug free; wear red.
Thursday - Shade out drugs; wear sunglasses.
Friday - Our school chooses to be drug free; wear purple and white.
