Red Ribbon Week

October 22-26, 2018


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, stand up against bullying, and to make positive choices. This PTA sponsored event encourages students to be involved in each day’s theme.


  • Monday, October 22nd:  Wear something RED today.  Each student will also receive a “Red Ribbon” sticker from their teacher
  • Tuesday, October 23rd:  Use Your Head, Make Healthy Choices.  Come to school in a crazy hat, crazy hair or crazy socks
  • Wednesday, October 24th:  #eastsidebekind.  Show your East Side Pride and wear your favorite school shirt or the school colors
  • Thursday, October 25th:   Team Up Against Bullying.  Wear your favorite sports team shirt or team colors
  • Friday, October 26th:   Be Someone’s Hero.  Superheroes stand up to bullies.  Dress up as your favorite superhero today.


In addition to the daily themes, the PTA is sponsoring a Poster Contest.  Posters should display at least one of these themes:

  • #eastsidebekind
  • Be Someone’s Hero, Stand up to Bullying
  • Say Boo to Bullying

Include your name, grade and teacher to be eligible to win. Posters can be left in the mailroom until 7:50 a.m. on Wednesday, October 24th, for a chance to win a prize.
