Red Ribbon Week will be celebrated this year from October 27th- 31st. Red Ribbon Week is a unified way for communities to take a stand against drugs and to publicize the value of a drug free lifestyle. The children will be participating in activities to educate them to say no to drugs. During the week we will have theme days where the children will be allowed to wear specific clothing to go along with the theme. The themes are as follows:
Monday, October 27th – “I Mustache You Not to Do Drugs.” – Everyone will wear a mustache or disguise (cannot cover your whole face)
Tuesday, October 28th – “Sock it to Drugs.” – Everyone will wear mismatched or crazy socks.
Wednesday, October 29th – “Stomp Out Drugs.” – Everyone will wear sneakers.
Thursday, October 30th – “Orange you Glad You’re Drug Free.” – Everyone will wear orange.
Friday, October 31st – “Hocus Pocus Drugs Aren’t My Focus.” – Everyone will wear his or her Halloween costume during his or her school parade.
Students will be receiving a bracelet and bookmark at the beginning of the week.
There are many ways to help those who have served or are currently serving our country. This year Memorial School has one of their own parents serving overseas in Afghanistan. Mrs. Lenentine’s class has been communicating with Mrs. Taylor-McGuire, Ian and Jared’s mom on a weekly basis. We would like to send a care package from Memorial School to Mrs. Taylor-McGuire and her unit. Some of the items they would love to receive are listed below. If you would like to send in one of more of the items listed please do so by November 11th. Monetary donations will also be accepted to help defray the cost of shipping the item to Afghanistan. Thank you in advance for your support.
· Pop tarts (Mrs. Taylor-McGuire’s favorites are Brown Sugar & Cinnamon and Chocolate)
· Candy – (nothing that will melt)
· Potato chips and snacks
· Individual single powered drink flavored packages (the ones you can add to a bottle of water)
