Red Ribbon Week 2012 @ Worley

This week has been a whirlwind of lessons and presentations in honor of Red Ribbon Week 2012.

As most people know, Red Ribbon Week is a drug prevention program that is held each year in late October. Students and faculty engage in anti-drug assemblies and advisory type lessons. This week at Worley, we met in advisory classes to hear information how to maintain a drug free lifestyle. Additionally, students participated in an Advisory class poster competition, and an 8th grade Infection Activity/Assembly.

Through 7th grade ELA courses, students heard a story about the consequences of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol from one of our teachers - Ms. Grosvenor.

Our goal this week was to engage our students in meaningful lessons about the possible harmful effects of drugs and alcohol on their lives. Please ask your student about the things they learned this week.

Thanks to our STUCO students and advisor, Mrs. Crumby, for organizing this year's Red Ribbon Week. Also, a special thank you to Mr. Ervin and Mrs. Strange for organizing the 8th grade Infection Activity on Thursday. It takes a lot of time and effort outside of the school day to plan a school wide event. These teachers and students deserve a pat on the back!
