Red Ribbon Week
Red Ribbon Week is a national week celebrating being drug free,
making healthy choices, and not using violence to solve problems. We
will be celebrating using the Archdiocese of Chicago theme "Love
Yourself, Live Bully and Drug Free."
We will kick off
the week on Monday with an all school prayer service at 2:20pm. Red
Ribbons will be Blessed and distributed for all to wear.
night, there will be an Olweus parent meeting at 7:00pm in McDonough
Hall for any school parents who want to learn more about what the school
is doing about bullying!
Each day this week, a special activity will remind students to make healthy choices. There will be a contest recognizing healthy choices and classrooms will decorate their doors. Students will be invited to sign a pledge card showing their solidarity with others who chose to do the same.
Thursday, October 23, all students are invited to wear a piece of
red clothing (socks, tie, shoes, headband) along with their uniform.
Children learn by
watching models at school and at home. Thank you for supporting our
efforts to teach children about good and healthy choices.
