Red Ribbon Week Oct. 29th-Nov. 2nd

Red Ribbon Week is here! We are working hard at Coral Canyon to make sure that our school is a safe and friendly place for students to attend school. Each month we have our Steps to Respect curriculum in classrooms where we learn to prevent bullying by being respectful to our friends, inviting everyone to join in, and how to be powerful bystanders who can make a difference!

Each day this week, our PTA is helping us to celebrate our commitment to being drug and bully free! Students are invited to participate each day in the following ways:

  • Monday- Turn your back on Drugs! Students will wear their shirts backwards today and all students will have the opportunity to sign a drug-free pledge in the lunchroom. 
  • Tuesday- Red Ribbon Kickoff! Wear red to show you are Drug- and Bully-free! We will tie ribbons to our fence to show everyone that our school supports a bully and drug-free life.
  • Wednesday- Say Boo to Illegal Drugs! Happy Halloween! Students will wear orange and black today or a school spirit shirt
  • Thursday- Be the Change! Students will be given a caught being good coin at recess if they are spotted showing kindness, including others, playing fairly, etc. 
  • Friday- Team up to be bully and drug free! Students will wear their favorite team jersey and meet out on the field at 9:30 for our wrap-up activity!

Be sure to talk to your students about what it means to be bully- and drug-free! I'm sure they'll have some great things to share with you about our fun Red Ribbon week activities. Thanks to our Coral Canyon PTA! Red Ribbon Week rocks!!
