River Eves Parent Red Ribbon Pledge
I pledge to set guidelines to help children grow up safe, healthy, and drug-free".
As parents and citizens, we will talk to our children and the children in our lives about the dangers of drug abuse: -We will set clear rules for our children about not using drugs. -We will set a good example for our children by not using illegal drugs or medicine without a prescription. -We will monitor our children's behavior and enforce appropriate consequences, so that our rules are respected. -We will encourage family and friends to follow the same guidelines to keep children safe from substance abuse.
Red Ribbon Week is celebrated all over the United States.
Our RED Ribbon Theme this year at REES this year is: “GOOD Choices, Drug and Bully Free.”
The entire school emphasizes KINDNESS, ACCEPTANCE, and INCLUSION.
