Next week, October 23rd-27th, Solana Ranch will be celebrating National Red Ribbon Week. Our school, along with schools and organizations around the nation will focus on the importance of our children making good decisions, eating healthy, staying active, and living drug-free lives. Our PTO has planned a variety of activities throughout the week to help our students understand the importance of Red Ribbon Week and healthy living. Please encourage your student to participate and get involved.
Monday – BMX Assembly! Professional BMX riders will kick start the week with energetic music, cool stunts, and a positive message about living healthy lives.
Tuesday – Wear RED to show one’s commitment to living healthy drug-free lives, not just during Red Ribbon Week, but for life! Decorate bikes and scooters with red ribbons and ride to school. Rewards for those bikes and scooters that show the most Red Ribbon Week spirit!
Wednesday – Eat Healthy Challenge! For breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks eat at least one green light food and choose to not eat any red light foods. Jimbo’s organic apples (a green light food) will be served at lunch.
Thursday – PLEDGE Day! Students will be asked to sign a pledge saying “No!” to drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Students will also have the opportunity to join the Tinkering Club at lunch and make a creation that spreads the message to live a healthy life free of drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
Friday – Let’s Get Moving! During lunch Jazzercise will have students moving with dance and fitness games. Teachers, staff and parents are all welcome to join the fun!
Red Ribbon Week is a wonderful opportunity to introduce a sometimes difficult, but nonetheless important topic, to our children. We encourage you to use the events next week as a fun, non-threatening way to engage your children in conversations about being healthy, respecting themselves, and staying drug and tobacco free. This is the R(espect) and D(o the right thing) in PRIDE! The purpose of Red Ribbon Week is to teach our children healthy habits that will prepare them for the challenges they will face in the years ahead.
