Next week is Red Ribbon Week at Dorothy Grant Elementary. The image above is what we have planned for the students to do to celebrate and reinforce the importance of being drug free. It is important to note that on Tuesday for sports attire day that we ask students to avoid wearing anything related to the Raiders or the 49ers as local gangs use those teams to represent themselves.
I will be awarding students tickets and points each day for participating in the Red Ribbon Week activities. The tickets are good for a school wide raffle and the points will be special Red Ribbon Week points I award on Class Dojo that can be used toward earning reward lunch on Friday.
There is also a creative writing contest for grades 3-5. Students are encouraged to write about living a healthy and drug-free life. The writing can take the form of a poem, essay, or realistic fiction. We will be working on these in class and they are due Thursday, October 9th. You are more than welcome to begin discussing this topic with your child and helping them with ideas for what they might like to write about.
As always, feel free to message me on Class Dojo or via email.
