The Austintown Middle school is having fun while dressing up for Red Ribbon Week. It takes place at the school and it lasts the whole day. Every student can participate in the last week of October. It supports any student, child, or adult who has done drugs, alcohol, etc. in their life.
Red Ribbon week supports anyone who has been involved in drugs and alcohol. Students are given the option to wear outfits that are related to the theme of the day, that week. There was a schedule given out to every student that clarifies what they should wear that day. Monday was twin day where each student got to match with their friends. On Tuesday was “What does the fox say?” day, where each student wore an animal print outfit. Wednesday was Glee day and each student wore black to represent a Glee actor that died of drugs. Thursday was Duck Dynasty day,students were encouraged to dress like the Duck Dynasty cast . Friday is the day for students, to wear all red to support Red Ribbon Week.
This week was an inspiring week that shows kids not to do drugs. Many participated in this event and they were all happy that they were able to wear anything. Drugs are a dangerous addiction. So staying away from them means, and live a long, happy and healthy life.
