Red Ribbon Week    
October 20th – 24th, 2014
Our theme for this year is -

 “Love Yourself, Be Drug Free”


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Brooks Elementary will be joining schools nationwide in delivering a prevention message that encourages young people to say “Yes” to a healthy lifestyle and “NO” to drugs and alcohol. We want your child to participate in the Red Ribbon Week poster and essay contest this year. This provides a great opportunity for you to talk with your child about the importance of staying drug free and making good choices.

The divisions are:

Early Primary K-1    Poster and/or Essay

Late Primary 2-3       Poster and/or Essay

Intermediate 4-5        Poster and/or Essay

Posters may be any size, and any medium can be used to create the poster. All posters and essays are due on Friday, October 24th. This year 5th grade will select their essay winners from the DARE program essays.

Each day of Red Ribbon week, we will celebrate by featuring a different theme.

Monday(10/20th) – Red Ribbon Kick-Off Day:  Red Ribbon Bracelets will be given for everyone to wear to show their support of Red Ribbon Week.

Tuesday(10/21) Say no to drugs!! Students wear Red. One dress down pass per class will be given to the student who wears the most red.

Wednesday (10/22) – Students wear pajamas!! We will have sweet dreams about our future if we stay away from drugs and alcohol.

Thursday (10/23) – Dress like your friend. Friends don’t let friends do drugs or bully.

Friday (10/24) – Wear your favorite hat.  “Put a cap on Drugs”

Thanks for all you do to help your child be the “BEST”!
