National Red Ribbon Week

Monday, October 22, begins the national celebration of "Red Ribbon Week." All Highland students will be participating in the week-long celebration with age-appropriate activities and daily themes and messages that reinforce a bully-free and drug-free environment. Red Ribbon Week is also about making good choices, kindness to others and believing in ourselves. Each student will receive a red ribbon, which symbolizes their commitment to live a positive and healthy lifestyle by being drug free and bully free. Please remember to talk with your student about the importance of National Red Ribbon Week!
