(Attached is summary of school activities across the District.)
Red Ribbon Week is in memory of Kiki Camarena, a drug enforcement agent who gave his life in 1985 to the establishment of a Drug Free America.
District music teacher Laura Tovar has written a new song, “We Are The Future,” which has been provided to the schools and will be sung by children during the week. Students and parents will be given pledges to sign a commitment to be drug free. Red Ribbon T-shirts will be available for order. A list of valuable websites about substance abuse that are designed for parents, students, and teachers will be distributed and featured on District’s website.
