Mansfield Elementary School Celebrates Red Ribbon Week October 24th to October 28th
This year, Mansfield will celebrate Red Ribbon Week from Monday, October 24th, to Friday, October 28th. The Red Ribbon Week Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered Kiki Camarena, a DEA agent, in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Week Campaign is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a DRUG-FREE AMERICA. As a community, let’s unite and take a stand against drugs. Please support this invaluable program by supporting the agenda below:
Monday, October 24th: “Red Rally”- Mansfield faculty, staff, and students wear as much of the color red as possible to celebrate the first day of Red Ribbon Week.
Tuesday, October 25th: “Team Up Against Drugs” Day- Mansfield faculty, staff, and students wear their favorite sports team attire to help support Red Ribbon Week.
Wednesday, October 26th: “Sock It to Drugs” Day- Mansfield faculty, staff, and students wear crazy socks to help support Red Ribbon Week.
