Gilbert Intermediate will be celebrating Red Ribbon week October 23rd - 27th Students in our school will be participating in a variety of activities throughout the week to encourage healthy, drug-free lifestyles. The Red Ribbon campaign was launched when Federal Agent Enrique Camarena was murdered by drug traffickers in 1985. The Red Ribbon creates positive peer pressure about drug-free choices and is the rallying point for millions of children and adults who share the commitment to live healthy drug-free lives.
Your family can demonstrate your commitment to healthy drug-free lifestyles by wearing and displaying RED RIBBONS during RED RIBBON WEEK. RED RIBBON week provides a wonderful opportunity for “teachable moments” with our children. Discuss what the acceptable “standards of behavior” are for your family. Listed below are ideas for strengthening your family for drug-free living from the American Council for Drug Education.
Your children are important to us! Let’s work together to let the students at Gilbert Intermediate know that, “They need to Love Themselves and Be Drug Free!”
Other ways your child can participate:
