College, University, Military, and Trade School Day: Red Ribbon Week 2011

Today's theme was College, University, Trade School and Military Day! "Believe, Achieve, Succeed - Drug Free!" Students and staff were encouraged to show pride for their future by wearing their favorite college, university, trade school, or military shirt! Students were also encouraged to wear their favorite college or university colors! I was excited to wear my Penn State jersey today to represent my undergraduate alma mater! :)

I was totally impressed with the level of staff participation today! There was a wide array of post-secondary opportunities represented.  It was so exciting to see everyone decked out in their favorite college, university, trade school, or military branch! My favorite was our school security guard dressed in full camouflage!

It was also great to see a few students completely decked out in college colors head to toe!

Overall, we didn't have as many students participate this year as did last year. I think part of it was attributed to our new dress code and the fact that students were not allowed to wear hooded sweatshirts.
Tomorrow is "Dress for Success" Day - Dress your best and look ready for success!
