Springville Junior High has just had an exciting Red Ribbon Week. It was the week of Fall Break, the 17th-19th of October. Every year, the service learning students plan Red Ribbon Week for the entire school. Red Ribbon Week is here to keep kids from taking drugs. During Red Ribbon Week, students were able to dress up, get candy, and enjoy living a drug-free life!
Each day had a theme that had to do with living a drug free life. The school began Red Ribbon Week on Monday the 17th with pajama day: “Don’t sleep through life, stay off drugs!” The junior high students wore their pajamas to school. Tuesday was clown day: “It’s no joke, don’t smoke!” Everyone dressed up in silly clothes to school. “Be smart don’t start!” On Wednesday, students came in nerd clothes.
The school got ready for Red Ribbon Week by having all the students write their names on “bricks” (colored sheets of paper) and taping them on a wall near the cafeteria. By doing this, the students promised to live a drug free life.
“Red Ribbon Week was lots of fun,” said Sidney Gierisch, an eighth grader at SJHS, “You got to dress up, and get candy!” SJHS definitely enjoyed a great Red Ribbon Week.
