Hey fans! The time has come, for Red Ribbon Week! This is an awareness week that has been going on for about 30 years. How did it start? After the DEA: Agent Enrique Camarena died in 1988, parents and youth communities started wearing red ribbons as sign of commitment to raise awareness of drug affects. To get students to recognize and represent this awareness week, from the 22nd – 26th, DPMS is having 5 days where staff members and students dress-up in certain “uniforms” that are fun, and unique.

 

Here is the schedule…

 

Monday- Wear RED (Pledge Day)!

 

Tuesday- Crazy Hair & Sock Day (From Head to Toe, I’m Drug Free)!

 

Wednesday- Wear ORANGE (National Anti-Bullying Day)!

 

Thursday- Pajama Day (Follow your dreams, don’t do drugs)!

 

Friday- Super Hero Day (You have the POWER to stay drug free)!
