Drug awareness week at Lawn school

The annual celebration of Red Ribbon Week will begin Monday, Oct. 25, at Lawn Avenue School.

Red Ribbon Week began in 1988 in memory of Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, a DEA agent killed by a Mexican Drug Cartel while undercover. Red Ribbon Week symbolizes that community members and students across America are committed to live drug-free. During this week, the student assistance counselor will promote education and awareness about the importance of living without drug.

Lawn School students are encouraged to participate in a Red Ribbon “spirit week,” which will include the following activities:

On Monday, “Put A Cap On Drugs” (hat day) will be held. Tuesday will be “Drug Free America” (wear red, white, and/or blue), Wednesday will be “Team Up Against Drugs” (wear a T-shirt or jersey supporting your favorite team), Thursday will be “Follow Your Dreams, Don’t Do Drugs” (wear pajamas or sweats) and Friday will be “Sock It To Drugs” (wear crazy/mismatched socks). On Friday, there will also be an end-of-day student and faculty soccer game.

Contact Student Assistance Counselor Steph Nocon at 423-7010 for more information.
