2016-17 Theme: "What's Your Story?"
Red Ribbon Week
2016 Red Ribbon Campaign = "YOLO - Be Drug Free"
National Red Ribbon Week is October 24th - 28th. This is a national campaign to recognize and put a stop to bullying. We encourage everyone to participate and show your support.
Westchase Elementary is joining the nation-wide Red Ribbon Campaign to help promote healthy, drug- and bully-free lifestyles. This program is one of the oldest and largest drug prevention programs in the US.
The theme for the 2016 Campaign is "YOLO (You Only Live Once) - Be Drug Free".
Your children can show their support of this important message by participating in the following:
- Monday, October 24th - wear a red shirt to kick off the week.
- Tuesday, October 25th - wear a hat to put a cap on bullies and drugs.
- Wednesday, October 26th - wear sunglasses to shade out drugs and bullies.
- Thursday, October 27th - wear your shirt backwards to turn your back on bullies and drugs.
We will be reminding students about the importance of beign drug- and bully-free.
Did you know that children of parents who talk to their kids regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don't, yet only a quarter of kids report having these conversations?
