PAL- Peer Assistance Leadership

Las Flores Middle School

PAL’s Red Ribbon Week

October 21-25, 2019

 

WHAT IS RED RIBBON WEEK?

Red Ribbon Week is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. Show your personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle through the symbol of the Red Ribbon, October 21st- 25th.

 

WHY?

The Red Ribbon Campaign® was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign® is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a DRUG - FREE AMERICA.

 

WHO?

The PAL Leaders of Las Flores Middle School have planned daily activities to support Red Ribbon Week and to remind our students to make healthy choices in their lives. Through our Red Ribbon Week, we connect to anti-drug and anti-alcohol campaigns.

 

WHAT?

Each day we will have a theme connected to the idea of making healthy choices. 

  • Monday: “Too Smart to Start, Make Drug-Free Choices.” Dress like a nerd day. Lunchtime activity is “Dodge Ball”

  • Tuesday: “Stand Up for What is Right, Even if You Stand Alone.” Dress like a superhero day. Lunchtime activity is “Freeze Dance.”

  • Wednesday: “Bee Safe, Bee Kind, and Bee Alcohol Free.” Dress like a bee day (wear black and yellow). Lunchtime activity is “Bees and Roses.”

  • Thursday: “Don’t Huff, Don’t Puff. Stay Away from that Stuff!.” Dress like a pig day (wear pink). Lunchtime activity is “Marshmallow and Straw Race.”
