Emge Elementary will be celebrating our annual Red Ribbon Week from October 24th - October 26th. During Red Ribbon Week, students and staff will honor a commitment to live a drug-free and healthy life. We will also focus on motivating kids to make positive choices that impact both themselves and others.
In Remembrance: The Red Ribbon Campaign started when Federal Agent Enrique Camarena was murdered by drug traffickers in 1985. He spent his life dedicated to making a visible effort to rid our communities of illegal drugs. In response to his death, communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of the commitment to a drug free lifestyle. Red Ribbon Week is dedicated to teaching drug prevention in our school systems and communities.
Below are the daily activities:
Monday, October 24 - I pledge to be Drug Free!
Students and staff will wear RED to show their commitment to a drug-free lifestyle.
Tuesday, October 25 - Team Up Against Drugs!
Wear a sports or team shirt. (Students and staff will wear their Emge anniversary shirt on a different day due to the all school 20th anniversary photo being postponed).
Wednesday, October 26 - We Say BOO! to Drugs
Wear a Halloween shirt or colors.
