The theme is also a reminder that by staying drug free, you are sending a message to yourself and others about how much you value yourself, your overall health, your community and your future.These activities “allow students to observe the cooperation of the community toward a common goal.”

Monday

Tuesday: Send a message with your crazy hair or hat that you will stay drug free. 

Wednesday: Send a message with your cool socks to stay drug free.  Sign the drug free poster during luch.

Thursday:  Send a message of thanks to the culture that will help you stay drug free.  Wear clothing from that culture.

Friday:  Send a message what activity will you do to stay drug free.  Dress in your active wear.

All classrooms will receive Red Drug free wristbands. While wearing the wristband, visit the 2019 sponsors and enjoy the following opportunities during the entire Red Ribbon Week:

What is Red Ribbon Week?
National Red Ribbon Week is celebrated in October each year. It is a time set aside by educators, law enforcement agencies and cities to promote children, families, and every member of the community in taking a stand against the use and abuse of drugs and narcotics.  The event was started in 1985 to mark the life of US Drug Enforcement Office, Enrique ‘Kiki’ Camarena.  He was born in Mexicali, Mexico and graduated from high school in Calexico, CA. After he went to the Marine Corps for 2 years he became a Narcotics Investigator with the El Centro Police Department. He then worked 11 years with law enforcement, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), throughout California and Mexico trying to get rid of people who did not obey laws. Then a tragic event happened in 1985 when Kiki was close to solving a huge investigation. He was murdered by the drug cartel and never seen again. 

Ever since this innocent man put his life on the line to protect citizens from drug problems, people from everywhere celebrate Red Ribbon week in honor of everything Kiki did for us. The wearing of red ribbons was practiced to celebrate his memory, and this is how the event got its name “Red Ribbon Week”! We wear red to promote a drug free life! Drugs continue to plaque our country as they affect both children and adults. Families and friends also suffer the when a loved one is addicted to drugs. As a student, you can do your part by sending a positive message to your peers in your school and with your families at home. Thank you Enrique Kiki Camarena!

Please help celebrate Red Ribbon Week with our fun themes. Let’s show everyone how being drug free truly is the only option in life! Make sure you wear your red ribbon each day as well as dress up for each theme. 
Remember-it is your life and being drug free is a choice! Make smart choices because they last a lifetime!!!
