Red Ribbon Week October 28-31

October 23, 2014

Dear Families,

The Katonah-Lewisboro School District will be promoting its annual Red Ribbon Week Celebration, a district-wide alcohol and drug prevention event. This year, all schools K-12 will once again be participating in age-appropriate prevention activities during the week of October 28th -31st.

Red Ribbon Week has grown into the most far-reaching and well-known drug prevention event in America. It began to honor a drug enforcement agent who was killed in 1985 while working undercover in Mexico. In response to his murder, friends and family wore red ribbons in memory of his crusade against illegal drug use in this country. Today, schools across the nation continue the tradition of wearing red ribbons to promote choosing a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.

In order to raise awareness throughout the community, with the generous support of the Bedford-Lewisboro Drug Abuse Prevention Council, the buses will be displaying ribbons during Red Ribbon Week. The elementary schools will be handing out red ribbons and/or stickers to all students and faculty and participating in various other activities. The Middle School SADD Club (Students against Destructive Decisions) and the High School Prevention Awareness Council (PAC) will be hosting prevention activities throughout the week as well. Each school library has also been encouraged to set up Red Ribbon tables with relevant books.

The District encourages you to take this opportunity to discuss the concepts of Red Ribbon Week with your family. Following this letter we have provided some tips to help you get started.

Thank you in advance for making this a successful community prevention effort.
