Last week at SJHS, the students showed their commitment to not getting involved with drugs. The Service Learning class gave out the dress up days and themes for the week.  Monday was spirit day, “Show your spirit by not doing drugs.” Students dressed up in their school colors to show their school spirit. Tuesday was hero day, “Be someone else's hero, and don’t do drugs.” Wednesday was sports day, “Be athletic, not pathetic, and don’t do drugs.” Thursday was swap day, “Dress as your favorite teacher and your teachers will dress as you, swap drugs for education.” Friday was crazy day, “Go crazy on candy not drugs.”

Students at SJHS think it’s important to not do drugs because, “drugs can ruin your life,” said Cami Sumsion, a student at SJHS.   The students of Service Learning made Red Ribbon Week possible. They came with the days of the week and put up posters that said “Don’t Do Drugs” so students would realize that drugs are not good for them.
