Students celebrate Red Ribbon Week

COLERIDGE — Red Ribbon week was celebrated at Laurel-Concord-Coleridge Elementary and Middle Schools last week.

The Drug Free Week was sponsored by the schools’ Student Councils.

The students had dress up days to go along with this special week.

Monday was Pajama Day, Tuesday was “Afro” Day, Wednesday was the day for “Cowboys and Cowgirls,” Thursday was Neon Day and Friday was “Red” Day.

On Thursday afternoon, the Elementary students also had their class fall parties. A Costume Parade was also given for parents and the public to see everyone’s costumes.

The week is held nationally each year as a reminder to youth to stay drug and alcohol free.

Started in 1985 to raise awareness to the dangers and problems created by drug use, Red Ribbon Week is a fun way to help students be more aware and stand up against drugs and alcohol.
