RCE Celebrates Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week  

October 31-November 4, 2016

 

 From October 31- November 4, Rock Creek Elementary will be celebrating our annual Red Ribbon Week. During Red Ribbon Week students, as well as staff, honor a commitment to live a drug-free and healthy life.  

 

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.

Sometime during the week students will say and sign a Drug Free Pledge with their class.
