1.Did you know the “Red Ribbon Campaign” was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985?

The mission is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a DRUG - FREE AMERICA. The theme for Monday the 23rd will be “Your future is bright, don’t do drugs” – wear your neon clothes. Students you must stay in dress code next week, hats are acceptable and no full-face painting.
