Posted Date: 10/19/2021

Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week will be Monday, October 25 through Friday, October 29.  

The schedule for the elementary dress up days are as follows:

  • Monday: Wake up Drug Free – wear pajamas
  • Tuesday: Don’t Play Around with Drugs – dress to represent your favorite game
  • Wednesday:  Give Drugs the Boot – wear western attire
  • Thursday: Friends Don’t Let Friends do Drugs – be twinkies with someone
  • Friday: Scare Away Drugs – wear Halloween costumes

High School will be not be participating in dress up days; students will be encouraged to engage in random acts of kindness.  The following is the schedule for high school events during Red Ribbon Week. 

Monday - Sit by someone at lunch you don’t usually sit by who needs a friend. Introduce yourself to someone who is new to our school and let them know you’re here to help. Make an effort to go out of your way to be nice to someone who seems to not have many friends or who is always alone.

Tuesday - Random Acts of Kindness Day - A banner will be set up in the lobby where students/teachers may use post-it notes to give shout-outs to someone who completed a RAK activity for them or someone else.  At the end of the day, RAKs will be recognized and praised. 

Wednesday - Bring canned food items to help stock our food pantry for our Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes because giving back to others is an important way to make a difference in others' lives.  We will also be viewing the state’s new documentary about the Opiod crisis in Arkansas "7 Days" - 9:30 - 10:30 in the Fine Arts Building

Thursday - Send encouraging emails to each other or drop each other encouraging notes!  Remember, a note of encouragement can bring a smile to someone’s face and help someone who may be feeling like no one cares to know that they are loved and special.  

Friday - Let’s show the elementary students how “sweet” we can be by letting them come trick or treat with us! Kindness is passed down from younger to older students by example...let's show them what we're made of.  There will be treats for you, too.  You can dress up in your Halloween costume, but don’t make it too scary for the little ones.
