CAMPUS MIDDLE SCHOOL CELEBRATES RED RIBBON WEEK

 

Campus Middle School invites the community to take a visible stand against drugs by celebrating Red Ribbon Week from October 8-12 with this years theme, “Celebrate Red Ribbon Week, Not Just for a Week, but for LIFE!”

 

Red Ribbon Week raises awareness of drug use and the problems related to drugs facing our community, and encourages parents, educators, business owners, and other community organizations to promote drug-free lifestyles. This year’s celebration will kick off on October 8th with each day having a theme to involve our students, and activities scheduled throughout the week include drug & alcohol awareness trivia contests conducted during lunch periods.  In addition,  Campus is proud to welcome back, Ray Lozano on Tuesday, October 9th and Wednesday, October 10th.  For the last 20 years, Mr. Lozano has presented to thousands of students nationwide. He has educated and entertained students in hundreds of middle and high schools from Alaska to Florida during his career. Among his proudest accomplishments are participating in the creation of the Red Ribbon Campaign!

 

Red Ribbon Week encourages our entire community to adopt healthy, drug-free lifestyles. The campaign brings together parents, schools, and businesses as we look for innovative ways to keep kids and communities drug free.  In addition to Mr. Lozano’s presentations at Campus, he will also be holding a free presentation to the public on Tuesday, October 9th at Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church – Community Life Center from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.

The red ribbon symbolizes a continuing commitment to reducing the demand for illicit drugs in our communities. In 1985, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent Enrique S. "Kiki" Camarena was killed by drug traffickers. Shortly after Camarena's death, citizens from his hometown of Calexico, California, began wearing red ribbons to remember him and commemorate his sacrifice. Congress established Red Ribbon Week in 1988.

 

Red Ribbon Week gives us the opportunity to be vocal and visible in our efforts to achieve a drug-free community. Research shows that children are less likely to use alcohol and other drugs when parents and other role models are clear and consistent in their opposition to substance use and abuse.
