Red Ribbon Week

October 23-27, 2017


YOLO.  Be Drug Free!



Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October. Many of us remember it from when we were children; the National Red Ribbon Campaign began in 1985, and, since then, it has touched the lives of millions of people.   


Today, the Red Ribbon Campaign serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Throughout Red Ribbon Week at East Side our students will be encouraged to wear red, sign a pledge to stay away from drugs and show their knowledge of and support for choosing a healthy lifestyle. But more simply, it will encourage a conversation and hopefully help our students realize that the only way to live is to live drug-free.
