Lavaland Students, Staff Form a Human Red Ribbon

The students are among many across the district who commit to living a drug-free life during national Red Ribbon Week.

More than 600 students, teachers, administrators and staff at Lavaland Elementary joined together this week to form a human red ribbon symbolizing their commitment to living a drug-free lifestyle.

The school came together to form the larger-than-life ribbon during their Rally in Red Against Drugs Day which kicked off a week of events on Monday, Oct. 27.

The students also wore crazy hats on Use Your Head, Don't Do Drugs Day.

Other planned days for the week include:

  • From Head to Toe, I am Drug Free (crazy hair day)
  • Sock it to Drugs (crazy socks day)
  • Let's Scare Away Drugs (character costumes).

The school also sponsored a door decorating contest.

Red Ribbon Week, which is Oct. 27-31 this year, is part of the national Red Ribbon Campaign sponsored by the National Family Partnership. It serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Since its inception in 1985, the campaign has reached millions of U.S. children and families. T
