ACTIVITES: 2014 Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week is rapidly approaching. October 27th to October 31st will be a week full of commitment to drug prevention and education. Red Ribbon Week began after Special Agent Camarena’s kidnapping, torture, and brutal murder in 1985.

In order to raise awareness and pledge to help make the United States a drug free nation, we will have special dress days and activities.
