LHSD Takes the Drug-Free Pledge with Red Ribbon Week
Logan High School
Submitted by: Dani Bell

National Honor Society and the Positive Outreach Committee has been sponsoring Red Ribbon Week from October 29th through November 2. This is an event dedicated to raising awareness for alcohol, tobacco, drugs and violence prevention. It is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention program, reaching millions of Americans during the last week of October every year. During lunches, students and staff have been signing a banner and pledge to be bully-and drug-free. As of mid-week, 300 signatures have already been added! Students have also be given red wristbands that say, “ONE SCHOOL ONE GOAL BULLY AND DRUG FREE” “Never Bully Others, Say No to Drugs.”

This week, students have been encouraged to participate in the following theme days.
-Monday: ¨Put a cap on drugs¨ - Wear hats
-Tuesday: "Our future's bright!¨- Wear neon colors
-Wednesday: ¨Drugs are scary!¨ - Wear orange/black or costumes (no masks)
-Thursday: ¨Check yourself before you wreck yourself¨ - Wear plaid or a flannel
-Friday: ¨RED ALERT! We are drug free! - Wear red
