Red Ribbon Week

October 23-27, 2017


Red Ribbon Week is a national event that helps unite students against negative behaviors and helps promote making positive choices. At East Side, we encourage students to be drug-free, discourage bullying and make positive choices.


Students are encouraged to participate in Red Ribbon week this year through the following activities:  Enter to win a prize by turning in a poster that shows your favorite super hero and the slogan “Your future is key, so stay drug-free.”  Include your name, grade and teacher to be eligible to win – posters can be left in the mailroom and will be judged on Oct. 24. In addition, each day will have a special theme to underscore the Red Ribbon Week message:

  • Monday, Oct. 23:  Our school chooses to be drug-free - wear your favorite school shirt or school colors. Each student will receive a “Good character, good choices” ribbon from their teacher.
  • Tuesday, Oct. 24: Peace out to drugs - wear peace signs or tie-dye clothes.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 25: Team up against bullying - wear your favorite sports shirt or jersey. Students will receive a “My character counts. I’m drug-free” sticker.
  • Thursday, Oct. 26:  Use your head – don’t use drugs - come to school in a crazy hat or with crazy hair.
  • Friday, Oct. 27: Promote good character - dress up as a super hero with a positive character who prevents bullying.
