Red Ribbon Week 2015 Print E-mail
Friday, 23 October 2015 00:00


The week of October 26th is Red Ribbon week this year.

During this week, we emphasize how the choices we make relate to our health, how we treat others and how to be responsible citizens.

All the children will receive red ribbons this week.  We also have special days lined up:

Monday:  Backwards Day - Students wear their clothes backwards or inside out to show that making unhealthy choices would be "backwards" thinking
Tuesday: Crazy Hair Day - Students wear their hair in crazy fashion to demonstrate thinking as individual and to resist peer pressure.
Wednesday:  Pajama Day - Students wear their pajamas to show how getting between 9-10 hours sleep is a healthy choice to be a productive learner.
Thursday: Support Your Favorite Team Day - Students wear jerseys, hats, etc. to show support to athletic teams to remind them that they should strive for 60 minutes of exercise a day.
Friday:  Sun Day - Students wear summer clothes (although take weather into account) to remember to play outside and take a screen break from electronics.
Friday is also the SCA sponsored Pumpkin Decorating Contest.
