Red Ribbon Week Teaches Healthy Life Choices


Red Ribbon Week was celebrated last week, and it kicked off at Spirit Meet on Monday when Officer Kim and McGruff visited students! Red Ribbon Week focuses on teaching children how to make healthy choices in their lives.  On Monday, students wore sunglasses to "shade out drugs." Also on Monday, a "Making Healthy Choices" assembly was held for grades kindergarten through third presented by Officer Kim. McGruff made an appearance once again, to the delight of the young audience. The festivities were planned by the P.E. Department.

Tuesday was "hat day" to "put a lid on drugs."  

Wednesday was "Crazy Sock" day where students showed that they "sock it to drugs."  

Students wore jerseys to school on Thursday to show that they "Say No to Drugs and Say Yes to Sports."

Friday rounded out the week with "Wear Red Day" and classes were judged for the poster decorating contest. The winning class was Mrs. Schuppe's second grade. They will receive a pizza party for designing the winning poster. Their motto was, "Hocus Pocus, Healthy Choices are our Focus!" Second place went to Ms. Waleko's second grade for their "Lei off unhealthy choices" Hawaii-themed design, and third place went to Ms. Dellapolla's third grade for their Halloween-themed, "No Bones About It - We Say No to Drugs."
