MRH Elementary Prepares to Celebrate Red Ribbon Week
MRH Elementary students will celebrate Red Ribbon (Drug Prevention) Week as an extension of our Health curriculum from October 28 to November 1. As we continue to model Respect, the character trait for October, we will also emphasize how students can respect themselves by staying drug-free. The activities planned for next week will encourage students to acquire the life skills needed to make healthy choices now and in the future.
A team of sixth grade leaders will introduce Drug Prevention Week to the entire student body on Monday, October 28, 2013. All students and staff are encouraged to participate in the daily "Drug Prevention Themes" during the week!
