Red Ribbon Week begins Monday, October 28

OCTOBER 28-November 1, 2013

Friday, October 25, 2013
Next week we will celebrate Red Ribbon Week.  Red Ribbon Week is a nationwide anti-drug campaign that usually takes place in the last week of October. Its focus is on the prevention of drug use through education.  This year’s Red Ribbon Week theme is “A Healthy Me Is Drug Free”. During the morning announcements Mr. Wink will announce ideas to help kids recognize good choices and healthy behavior.  Today, teachers will send home a red note to inform parents and kids of the activities that we will be having at school next week to promote a drug free life style.  On Monday, let’s all wear bright neon colors to kick off Red Ribbon Week!

Wear Crazy socks so we can Sock It To Drugs!  GES students will definitely Sock It To Drugs!  Stick up for what you believe.  If someone offers you drugs say “No” and walk away.  Some ways to say “No” are:  “No thanks”, “I don’t like it”, “It’s against the law”, “I’ve got to go now”, “No way!”, or “My parents won’t let me”.

Team Up Against Drugs so wear your favorite college or professional team shirt.  It’s not too early to start thinking about what college you would like to attend.  Tonight is Halloween, and it is traditionally a night filled with lots of fun. Here are some ideas to help you stay healthy and safe.

     1.  Only go trick or treating with a responsible adult.
     2.  Do not eat any treats until you bring them home to be examined by your parent. 
     3.  Never go into the home of a stranger or get into their car. 
     4.  Make sure your carry a flashlight, glow stick or have reflective tape on your costume to make yourself more visible to cars.

Friday is the last day of Red Ribbon Week.  Wear orange or your Gilmer spirit shirt to show your support for the Buckeyes!  “Orrrange You Glad to be Drug Free”? 

We hope your child learned a lot this week about staying drug free and being healthy.  During this week children signed a pledge to stay in school and keep themselves drug free.  This pledge isn’t just for a week; we must always make good healthy choices and not smoke, drink alcohol, or take illegal drugs.  “Be free like me. Gilmer Buckeyes are drug free!”
