    Red Ribbon Week
    By MJO

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Here is a new website on a new science curriculum that deals with drug effects on kids. It is called "Brain Power."

    We do a lot of activities for Red Ribbon Week. One year we released balloons with drug free messages inside and our address. We are in Missouri and heard from people in Indiana soon after. Then in the Spring we heard from someone around Chicago that had just found the balloon in a field. That was fun.
    We have done a Hands Off Drugs board that hangs outside our elementary school. It is a big piece of particle board painted white. Third grade students printed their hand prints and name on it to pledge hands off drugs.
    We usually pass out Halloween bags with a drug free message on them, Red Ribbon booklets, and stickers every day. We announce it at our football game that week and have a little ditty in the football program. Sometimes we have speakers come to the older students to bring them a drug free message. We have designed posters to display around the community. We also tie red ribbons around trees and phone poles for the week as a visual reminder. Hope these help.
