Red Ribbon/Bullying Prevention Week 2014
WHAT IS RED RIBBON WEEK?
It is a way for students to unite and take a visible stand against substance abuse. Students show their personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle through the symbol of the Red Ribbon.
Red Ribbon/Bullying Prevention Week will be celebrated this year on
October 27th - October 31st
Our theme this year is:
"Don't get caught in the web of drugs!"
This week students in the DuBois Area Elementary Schools will join children across the nation in taking part in Red Ribbon Week/Bullying Prevention Week activities.
Here is how we are celebrating....

FACT: The number one reason kids give for not using drugs is their parents!
However, 40% of parents believe they have little influence on their children's drug use.
Parents please talk to your children about drug abuse!
