PTA Red Ribbon Week and Picture Day

PTA Red Ribbon Week:

Red Ribbon Week is a national celebration that promotes and encourages students to choose to be drug free.  When we make choices to be drug free, we are better able to lead as caring, respectful and active members in our community.  We set our goals high to be the best we can be and also show good character by staying Drug Free!

We will observe this week by focusing each day on something that will help us stay drug free. 

Tuesday: Wear red to show you are drug free!

Wednesday: “Follow your dreams, don’t do drugs” (Wear pajamas to show you are drug free!)

Thursday: “Sock it to drugs” (Wear mismatched or crazy socks to show you are drug free!)

Friday: “Wild about being drug free” (Make your hair crazy and wear school colors to show you are drug free!)

We appreciate your support and invite you to discuss this important topic with your children!

 

School Picture Day:

School Picture Day is Thursday, October 24th.  Order forms for Bell Photography were sent home last week.  If you didn't receive an order form, please contact the office.
