This year Lamar County Schools Red Ribbon Week celebration will be held during the week of October 19th-October 23rd. Red Ribbon Week is a national campaign, which aims at teaching children the importance of being drug free.
The theme for Red Ribbon Week this year is “Our School Has Students Who Achieve Goals Drug Free”. During this week, please discuss the importance of making positive choices with your children. Encourage discussion about the dangers of drug and alcohol use with your children. Remember it is our responsibility as educators and parents to ensure that our children are provided with safe and healthy environments. Being drug free will help our children become successful members of their community and society. If you have any questions during this week please contact your child’s School Counselor. Thank you.
