Red Ribbon Week

This week at Long County Middle School our students have been participating in Red Ribbon Week.

Red Ribbon Week is a way for people to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. According to the National Red Ribbon Campaign, The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs.

This week, our students have had the opportunity to participate in dress-up days, sign a pledge to be drug-free, and decorate their homeroom doors.
