Red Ribbon Week

Poplarville Lower Elementary will celebrate Red Ribbon Week October 23-27.

Red Ribbon Week is a national campaign for drug prevention.  As a parent you have a strong influence in the life of your child.  Here are some things you can do to help prevent alcohol, tobacco and drug use:

  • Talk early.  Talk often.  Keep talking.  Listen when kids talk.
  • Look for teachable moments, such as while driving in the car.
  • Spend time with your kids.
  • Be clear about boundaries and consequences.
  • Help them plan how to resist peer pressure before it comes.
  • Be a parent, not a friend.  Your kids have plenty of friends. They only have you as a parent.
  • Be a role model.
  • Show your support.  Encourage their interest. Help them to learn from mistakes and move on.
  • Let them know you care.  Show it.

Students will be allowed dress up days for Red Ribbon Week.

  • Monday—We are ‘REDy’ to live a drug free life  (red shirt with uniform pants)
  • Tuesday—Who can I be drug free?  (Students may dress in future career attire.)
  • Wednesday—Real heroes are drug free! (Students may dress as super heroes or service personnel.)
  • Thursday—Hairs to Being Drug Free (wear crazy hair or hats)
  • Friday—Team up against drugs!  (Students may wear favorite sports team attire)
