STUDENT ACTIVITIES: Red Ribbon Week


Red Ribbon Week is from October 16th to October 20th, and Red Ribbon Week is to promote the idea of being drug free. Every student is given a red bracelet in third period to raise awareness of this event. In order to get most of the students active about this event, we arrange different activities everyday. During lunch on Monday, we hold a special activity with choir and Mrs. Coleman to teach students how to Zumba. On Tuesday, students are to wear their Hawaiian clothes to show "Lei off Drugs," and are welcome  to join the Hula hoop contest during lunch at the flagpole, play horse-shoes, jump rope, limbo, and pineapple bowl. On Wednesday, the topic is “Dress Up Don’t Mess Up,” students are supposed to wear a red shirt with red accessories such as socks, caps, sunglasses, ties, jewelry, watches with their school uniform, pants or skirts. At lunch, students are welcome to make a pledge to be drug free and to send messages to friends to let them know how much they are respected. On Thursday, students are to wear formal clothes to “Dress for Success.” During lunch, they can go to take a spin at the wheel to check out their fortunes; they can also go to participate in the Goggle Experiment on a loss of balance. On Friday, the last day of the week, in honor of Halloween, students can wear their costumes, and, at the same time, say BOO to drugs.

  16. Mrs. Coleman's singing is definitely something that I'll be remembering for the rest of my high school years. The combination of her voice and the choir's vocals made this lunch special and rememberable.

  17. I think Mrs. Coleman definitely rocked the performance with choir! I had a lot of fun setting up the week before with all the red ribbon and the bows. That was definitely an experience but the following events after, I thought, were pretty much a success. Thanks for putting on such a great week, Kyla!
