RED RIBBON WEEK

Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States. Twin Valley South is excited to be a part of this week and look forward to the student body participating too! Red Ribbon week will be observed 10/23-10/27. This year's theme is "Your Future is Key, So Stay Drug Free!"
 

Monday is PJ day... It’s My Dream to be Drug Free!

Tuesday is Hat Day…Hats Off to being Drug and Alcohol Free!

Wednesday will be Twin Day…Stand Together Against Drugs!

Thursday is Neon Day…Our Future is Bright!

And to cap the week off, Friday is Red Out Day…Love Yourself and Stay Drug and Alcohol Free!

 

Wrist bands will be distributed to the 1st period teachers for students to wear each day. Random names will be announced throughout the week. If you are wearing your bracelet when your name is called you win a prize. Other activities will take place throughout the week including a door decorating contest, signing a banner pledging to be drug and alcohol free, as well as a pie eating contest!
