Since 1985, the National Family Partnership has provided drug awareness by sponsoring the annual National Red Ribbon Campaign. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarean, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began forming coalitions focusing on creating awareness of the killing and destruction caused by drugs.
This year the week of October 23rd has been designated as Red Ribbon week and Rolling Hills will be participating in various student centered activities to raise an awareness of the dangers of drugs.
Monday, October 23rd: “Our School Chooses to Be Drug Free”- Wear your school shirt or school colors.
Tuesday, October 24th: “Being Drug Free is No Sweat” – Wear sweatpants and/or sweatshirts.
Wednesday, October 25th: “You Have the POWER To Stay Drug Free” – Dress like a superhero or wear your favorite superhero shirt (no masks).
Thursday, October 26th: “Use Your Head, Don’t Do Drugs” – Wacky hair/hat day
Friday, October 27th: “Take the Scare Out of Hunger” – Bring in a canned food item and wear your favorite costume to school. The Rolling Hills SCA will provide cider and donuts for all students. (No masks, weapons or clown costumes please).
In addition to the scheduled activities, there will also be a “Daily Red Ribbon Week Raffle”. Each student will receive a raffle ticket and a winner will be picked each morning for a special Red Ribbon Week prize!
