Poster/Essay Contest

This year we will have a Red Ribbon Week poster (drawing) and essay contest to help students think about how they can stay drug free.  The theme is, "Your future is key so stay Drug Free".  Ask your students to draw a picture and/or write a short essay (100 words or less) on how staying drug free can be an important key to a great future.  They have a lot of freedom with this activity.  The art contest can be on any size poster board or paper.  The essay contest needs to be on paper, please.  No digital submissions (unless you print them out and submit as a class).  I hope to decorate the halls for a couple of weeks :)  There will be one art contest and one essay contest winner selected from each grade level.  Please have all entries submitted to the front office by Wednesday October 25th at 3:30 p.m.


A Brief History

All this week we will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week started in 1988 as a symbol for a drug free movement.  Over 100,000 schools and organizations nationwide, including our school district, celebrate Red Ribbon Week, making it the most successful drug prevention ever held.  Red Ribbon Week reminds us that we can make good choices to be healthy by eating good foods, exercising, and not smoking or taking illegal drugs. Pledge to be drug free. Our special dress-up day for today is “Wear Something Red Day” to kick off Red Ribbon Week.

Red Ribbon Week Announcements


Here is your Red Ribbon Week tip for the day: The only drugs that are good for

you are medicines. They help us when we are sick or hurt. Please only take

medicine given to you by a doctor, nurse, parents, or a grown-up you trust.

Otherwise, just say no. It really is that simple-no other explanation needed.  

Our special dress-up day for tomorrow will be for you to wear your pajamas.  Follow your dreams and don’t do drugs!  Please do not wear slippers.

Please join us in saying the Just Say No pledge


I pledge to lead a drug free life I want to be healthy and happy I will say no to alcohol I will say no to tobacco I will say no to illegal drugs I will help my friends say no I pledge to stand up for what I know is right



Here is your Red Ribbon Week tip for the day: Remember there are many ways

to say NO.  If you want to follow your dreams and achieve your goals in life, then you have to be able to say NO when someone offers drugs to you.  Saying no is being honest to yourself, friends, family and school community.  Saying no is also a great way to help take care of yourself. Tomorrow our dress up day is “Orange you glad we don’t do drugs”.  All across the nation, students will be wearing orange for Unity Day.  Tomorrow is the day everyone can come together – in schools, communities, and online – and send one large ORANGE message of support, hope, and unity to show that we are together against bullying and united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion. Individuals across the nation, and even world-wide, can participate in Unity Day.



Today we are wearing orange for Unity Day.  Today is the Day that we unite together against bullying and unite for kindness. By being kind to everyone we will prevent bullying and help others have confidence in themselves. Tomorrow’s dress up day is anything mustache related and the theme for tomorrow is “I mustache you NOT to do drugs”.  



Life is more fun without drugs, smoking, and alcohol use.  Smoking is a habit that costs quite a bit of money and will make you sick eventually.  Using drugs and alcohol goes hand in hand with making other bad choices that almost always ends in people losing jobs, tearing apart families, and going to jail.  The best decision you can make to help you live a life of happiness and success is staying drug free. So… I mustache you to not do drugs. The dress up theme for tomorrow is “Team up for a healthy lifestyle”.  Wear any team clothing.  It can be your own team uniform or jersey.  You can also wear Vienna-Finley Elementary school or Scottsburg High School shirts, your favorite college team, or your favorite professional team shirt.



Here is your Red Ribbon Week tip for the day: Having a big cookie or a cheeseburger is great! But should we eat them everyday?!? It takes self-discipline to remember to eat the healthy foods your body needs to grow big and

strong. We need to be as healthy as we can.  Get plenty of sleep, drink water and exercise every day.  Exercise includes riding your bike, playing tag, dancing, swimming, playing basketball, or anything that includes getting up and moving.  Your mind and your body work together.  Having a healthy body helps keep your mind healthy so you are more likely to be able to say no to drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. Today we are giving away a sports pass for SCSD2 sports.  If you are interested and know your family will use it, please write your name on a piece of paper and give it to your teacher to give to Mrs. Asdell.  Mrs. Barrett will draw the name before dismissal and give the pass out at the end of the day.  

Please join us one last time in saying the Just Say No pledge.
