Red Ribbon Week 2-18

About Red Ribbon Week:

Red Ribbon Week is a time for us to focus on healthy behaviors and drug and bully free choices.   The theme is “Life is your Journey-Travel Drug Free”

Red Ribbon week was started all across the United States in 1985 in honor of a United States drug enforcement officer who was harmed by people who sold drugs.  People started wearing and displaying red ribbons to show support for the fight against drugs. This month, October, is also National Bullying Prevention Month.

This week we will have special fun theme days each day to show our support and remind us of the fight against bullying and drugs as well as our decision to make healthy choices.

****Remember, students still have to wear standard school attire bottoms  (except for career dress up day)!!

If you have any questions about Teasley’s celebration of Red Ribbon Week, contact the School Counselors- Mrs. S. Harris or Mrs. C. Oliver.
