Wear Red Day: Red Ribbon Week 2011

Today was Wear Red Day! Our theme was "Celebrate Red Ribbon Week! Not just for a day - but for life!" There was a sea of red today! There was a lot of student, faculty, and staff participation!

I continued to hang drug free pledge sheets with the help of student council members. They did a great job using the pledges to form large red ribbons in the school lobby.

Student council members were also responsible for judging the doors for the college door decorating contest today. I took pictures of all of the doors and the students came up with criteria to judge the doors. We watched a slide show of all of the doors first and then went back through to vote. It was tough because everyone did such a great job with their door decorations.

Tomorrow is going to be an action-packed day.  Tomorrow is our Dream Career Day for our theme "Follow Your Dreams - Don't Do Drugs!" Students are encouraged to dress up as their dream career. Last year we had a great level of faculty and student participation. I can't wait to see everyone dressed up tomorrow!

I will be dressing up like a veterinarian tomorrow! Many of my students are interested in learning more about veterinarians. I was so excited when I got the idea to dress up like a vet while I was at Ikea! ;) I can't wait to share a picture with you tomorrow!

Our first Career Cafe of the year is also tomorrow! I have a detective coming in to share his career journey with students. This year Career Cafe will be hosted in the library. Students are so excited for the first one. There are many students interested in careers in law enforcement.

Last but not least, we are having a School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (SWPBIS) kick off rally tomorrow! I will share more about that later!

See, I told you it was going to be action-packed tomorrow! I can't wait to share with you how it all goes!
