Red Ribbon Week is almost here!

Posted on Oct. 23 2014 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
McCulloch Junior High School will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week from Oct. 27 through 31 to encourage students to make healthy choices and stay drug-free.

Each day will have a theme, which will include classroom discussion topics and dress-up categories — and prizes will be awarded! Awards for the best-dressed scholars will be awarded during fourth period classes Monday through Thursday. There will also be awards for the best-dressed staffer each of those days as well. Here's a look at the themes:
  • Monday: Love Yourself, Live Drug-Free. All scholars and staff are encouraged to dress in red from head to toe!
  • Tuesday: Real Heroes are Drug-Free. Join the fight against drugs. You can be a hero and save a life by encouraging your friend to be drug-free. All scholars and staff are encouraged to wear camouflage, patriotic gear (red, white, blue), or clothing representing a branch of the military.
  • Wednesday: Wild About Being Drug-Free. All scholars and staff are encouraged to wear animal or animal print clothing and/or accessories, or wild/crazy color clothing and/or accessories.
  • Thursday: Catch the Wave to a Drug-Free Life. All scholars and staff are encouraged to wear their most tropical outfit (like Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts, leis, flip-flops, etc. NOTE: NO tank tops without a covering. Grass skirts MUST have shorts or pants under them.)
  • Friday: My Character Counts, I'm Drug-Free. Display TRUSTWORTHINESS, RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, FAIRNESS, CARING, and CITIZENSHIP by saying NO to drugs. All scholars and staff are encouraged to wear character gear (like Disney, Pixar, Marvel, cartoons, etc.)
In addition to the dress-up days, there will also be a banner/poster competition among the fourth-period classes. All classes will get to design an Anti-Drug / "Natural High" banner or poster, and one winning class will be chosen in each grade on Friday morning. The winning classes will get to enjoy a popcorn party on Friday!

We hope everyone will join in the fun, but we also hope that putting the spotlight on this important topic will help you make healthy choices for your own life and your future!
