Each year during Red Ribbon Week, we inform our students about making healthy choices and living a drug-free life. Middle School Students will hear from two of our own parents, Dr. John Isaac, heart specialist and Dr. John Goss, liver specialist, about the danger of drugs, alcohol and poor behavior choices. Both doctors will encourage our students to make wise choices for their lives. Grades Pre-k through 5th will hear from Beth Irvine, R.N. on the importance of choosing foods for a healthy diet and living without stress.
To help us celebrate Red Ribbon Week, we will have a fun theme for each day of the week!
* Monday - Stay in the Game Be Drug Free: Wear any colored sports jersey or team shirt!
* Tuesday - I'm a Jean-ius, I'm Drug Free: Wear Jeans with a red or school shirt!
* Wednesday - Sock it to Drugs: Wear crazy or mismatched socks!
* Thursday - Put a Cap On Drugs: Wear your favorite cap to school!
Finally, our students are always community-minded. We teach them that service to others is an important part of attending a Catholic school and being Christian. Our service theme for the month is Socktober! We are asking students and faculty to bring in a new pair of socks for an adult, teen or child and we will distribute them to needy families in our city. Our students and faculty realize and ask for your prayers as we keep Christ a priority and aim to lead healthier lives.Thank you for your support - Ms. Polzer
