We are celebrating Red Ribbon Week at Sequoia Elementary during the week of Oct 24th-Oct 28th. Red Ribbon Week is an Anti-Drug and Bullying prevention awareness campaign that helps students focus on making healthy lifestyle choices. This awareness is observed annually in October throughout schools across the United States. We would like our Sequoia Families to participate in Red Ribbon Week. We have two Red Ribbon challenges plus the Red Ribbon Week Spirit activities (Please see the flyer for more information.)
Challenge 1. Class Books
Each class will make a book to be displayed in our library. Topics by grade levels are:
- k-1 – Healthy Foods
- 2-3 – Being Healthy and Active
- 4-5 – A Healthy World
Judging will take place Thursday after school. One winner will be picked from each grade-level. Winners will be announced Friday and the winning classes will get 15 minutes extra recess.
Challenge 2. Individual Student Posters (voluntary!)
We also have a Red Ribbon Week poster contest that is voluntary. Students may make a poster at home and bring to their teacher by Wednesday, Oct. 26th. Posters can creatively express how to make heathy choices for a happy, healthy life or about friendship. You can visit redribbon.org for ideas. Poster should not be larger than 11″ x 17″. Please have your student write their name and room number on the back of their poster! Posters will be displayed around the school for judging Thursday, Oct. 27th. We will pick three winners (one from K-1, one from 2-3 and one from 4-5) to each receive a ticket to Disney on Ice!
