RED RIBBON WEEK: What is Your School Doing?

Red Ribbon Week is the week of October 22, 2012 and some schools will extend it until Halloween. Red Ribbon Week is drug and alcohol awareness week. Most school's celebrate it in some form or another. If you have not heard your school participating in Red Ribbon Week, then inquire about it.

Drug and alcohol usage can really pop it's head at any age. It is estimated that experimentation can begin as early as 4th and 5th grade, while some kids experiment in middle or high school. Early education is important, as well as early intervention. Schools need your help in making Red Ribbon Week a success. Your inquiry helps them realize that it is important to parents and families.

If you want to be involved with your school's Red Ribbon Week, or just want to learn more about how you can teach your kids about drug awareness, here are some websites with some great activities for many ages.
