We had a GREAT week, thanks to all the schools and 
everyone who participated and made it a great success.


Children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don’t, yet, only a quarter of teens report having these conversations.

Red Ribbon Week® (October 23-31), the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the nation, is your opportunity to get the ongoing conversation started. Founded in 1985, the mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign (Red Ribbon Week) is to present a unified and visible commitment toward the creation of a DRUG-FREE AMERICA.

The theme for 2018 is Life is Your Journey, Travel Drug Free. ™

Red Ribbon Week is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. Show your personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle through the symbol of the Red Ribbon.

Take the pledge to be drug-free, to advocate and help raise awareness about the dangers of drugs, and to be a good role model for making positive, healthy choices to youth and peers. 

Our Youth Action students are gearing up for Red Ribbon Week and would like to encourage as many parts of our community and beyond to get involved and participate.

We are grateful to the Raymond School District and Raymond Schools for participating. Here are the theme days:
