Red Ribbon Week is here! The middle school students started off the week with decorating grocery bags provided by Hanks Foods and Coborns. The bags will be returned and distributed to the community members when shopping. The 5th and 6th grade students decorated RED RIBBON locker badges for their lockers in honor of Red Ribbon Week. We have teamed up with the elementary school for the kids to partake in a coloring contest. The coloring sheets were designed by Mrs. Kennedy's advanced Art class. To make the week even a little more festive, the school has been decorated in red and white to provide more awareness to the campaign. Later in the week, students will be placing red ribbons around the antennas of the students and staff vehicles to be a daily reminder to say no to drugs, alcohol, and violence.
