Students Unite Against Drugs and Bullying

In its continuing efforts to ensure that students make smart decisions, stay drug-free and prevent bullying, the middle school hosted a Red Ribbon Week, full of events and information.

From Oct. 27-31, students participated in Wear Red to School Day and Wear a Mustache Day (to “mustache” you not do drugs or bully). They wore crazy socks to “sock it to drugs and bullying” and participated in Crazy Hair Day to say, “Hair’s to a drug- and bully-free life.”

Students also got their pinky fingers painted red, pinky-swearing to be drug- and bully-free, and participated in a poster contest.

The week featured a number of guest speakers, including police officer Nancy War and Dr. Andrew Clair, senior medical director at U.S. Medical Affairs, Pain and Neuroscience.
