The Red Ribbon Campaign began in 1985, after the murder of U.S. Drug Enforcement Agent, Enrique Camarena, by drug traffickers in Mexico. On the day of Enrique Camarena’s funeral mourners wore satin red ribbons to remind them of agent Camarena’s sacrifice. A campaign then developed around the Red Ribbon as the concept of a drug-free society was embraced. In 1986 Congress declared October as National Drug Prevention Month in recognition of increasing citizen participation in substance abuse prevention. Today Red Ribbon Week is a United States initiative for the education and prevention of drugs, tobacco and alcohol abuse.
Our schools red ribbon week is October 22nd through the 25th. The dress up days for this year are as follows: Monday is “Put drugs to sleep” wear your pajamas; Tuesday “Proud to be drug free” wear red; Wednesday “Shade out drugs” wear hats and shades; Thursday “Team up against drugs” wear Mustang gear. Each student will be given a red ribbon and pin to wear throughout the week. If you wear your ribbon into Celebrations you will receive a free ice cream cone. Support Red Ribbon Week and enjoy some free ice cream!
