MRH Elementary Students "Born to Be Drug-Free"

On October 24-27, MRH Elementary School will be participating in Red Ribbon Week, an alcohol, tobacco, and drug prevention awareness campaign. Elementary school children should know the effects of drugs and alcohol, the reasons why drugs are especially dangerous for growing bodies, and that remaining drug free is a choice. Parents are the most powerful influence on their child’s behavior! Please help us by supporting our school-wide activities during Red Ribbon Week.

Monday, October 24   “Wear Red Clothes Day”
    Staff and students wear red clothing and hats.
Tuesday, October 25   “Sock it to Drugs Day”
    Staff and students wear crazy or regular socks during the school day. (Students must wear shoes to                anywhere out-of-pod: restrooms/lunch/recess)
Wednesday, October 26  “Slam Dunk…Drugs are Junk”
    Staff and students wear their favorite sports team shirts or sweatshirts.
Thursday, October 27  “Drugs are a Bad Dream: Dream of a Drug-free World”
    Staff and students wear appropriate PJs to school.

Additionally, we are asking that children bring a baby picture of themselves for a bulletin board entitled, BORN TO BE DRUG-FREE. Please help your child remember to bring a picture to school during the week of October 17th.
