Krueger Elementary will celebrate Red Ribbon Week from October 28th-November 1st, 2013 by participating in the activities listed below. National Red Ribbon Week 2013 honors the 25th anniversary of the ultimate sacrifice made by U.S. Drug Enforcement Special Agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena. He made a difference by helping to fight illegal drugs. Today, over 100,000 schools and other organizations across the United States use this time to spread the important message about living a drug and alcohol-free lifestyle.
The following activities are planned in conjunction with the Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Citizenship, Respect, Fairness and Caring.
Monday: "Hands Off Drugs" Krueger students and staff will kick off this busy week by making a pledge to live a drug free life and keeping their hands off drugs. Special red ribbons with a drug free slogan will be given to students and staff. Wear a red shirt to help celebrate! We will show our citizenship by letting others know how proud we are to be Krueger Cavaliers.
Tuesday: "Close the Door on Drugs" Krueger Cavaliers are responsible. Students and teachers will decorate their doors with a sign or slogan that shows they are responsible for themselves by saying NO to drugs. We will hold a door decorating contest. The winner will be announced on Friday during announcements.
Wednesday: "Shade Out Drugs" Caring people want what is best for their bodies so they can live a long and healthy life. Wear your favorite sunglasses to school to show that Krueger Cavaliers will not be blinded by drugs.
Thursday: "Take a Stand for a Drug Free Land" Wear red, white and blue to show that Krueger Cavaliers are trustworthy. Be a hero and care not only about yourself but about others around you. Make good choices and demonstrate that you respect your body and are proud to live a drug free life!
Friday: "I'm a jean-ius! I'm drug free!" Wear your jeans and your spirit shirt to show that Krueger Cavaliers are fair. Fairness means playing by the rules. At Krueger, we make smart choices by being honest, good friends and team players!
