Red Ribbon Week

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.
