Friday students dressed in the 60’s to show how they say “ peace out to drugs”. During this week the staff tried to show students how bad drugs are and also stressed the importance of not taking drugs.

Many students have different opinions about Red Ribbon Week.  

Illiana P. (7th) stated “No I don’t think it’s important students because people have their own decisions, and I don’t really think it affects anybody.” Then she stated “some days, I participated on twin day with Tatum Kiser.” when i asked if she participated.

Thursday students dressed up as twins. They made Twin Day to show how we team up against drugs.  The students are teaming up to prevent each other to say “ yes”, to drugs instead of no.

Mayela R. (7th) stated “I think Red Ribbon Week is important because, it is a way I can symbolize I won’t do drugs in the future. Also, to encourage others not to do drugs, by participating in drug free week.  I enjoyed participating in all of the events throughout the week.”  

This week helps students understand how bad drugs are. Also, why they should not take them. This week is a week to show our support to help people stay drug free.
