RED RIBBON WEEK is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the nation and it happening October 23-31, 2016. Here at Shelburne Community School the CY-LEAD group has been celebrating RRW this week by passing out red ribbons, reading “healthy choices” books to the younger grades during their library time, sponsoring a spirit week and a culminating middle school activity night. Please partner with us and use this as your opportunity to get the ongoing conversation started with your child/children. This year’s theme is YOLO (You Only Live Once), Be Drug Free.
