2016 Red Ribbon Week

Monday, October 24 - Friday, October 28, 2016

This year's Red Ribbon Week theme is:
YOLO. Be Drug Free.

Statistics show that children whose parents talk to their teens regularly about drug use are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don’t. Yet, only a quarter of teens report having these conversations. This is a great opportunity for families to start such dialogue. When our kids come home with a bookmark or a bracelet, when they are dressed in red, or when they see the school decorated with red ribbons, you can start these conversations at a level appropriate to your child.
Red Ribbon Week is a national alcohol, tobacco, and drug prevention awareness campaign observed annually (October 24-28 this year).

Students are encouraged to wear red on Thursday, October 27th to celebrate Red Ribbon Week and making good choices for their bodies!
