Red Ribbon Week 10/21-10/25
Red Ribbon week was established as a tribute to Special Agent Enrique Camarena who was famous for arresting drug traffickers in Mexico in 1985. A red ribbon was worn by many to honor him and his memory.
Today, Red Ribbon Week is a symbol of determination to eliminate the illegal use of drugs. Schools across our nation participate in Red Ribbon Week to encourage a drug free life for all of our children. In our community we feel it is important to pass this awareness down to our youngest of students in the hopes future.
The Graham PTA has planned special activities to honor this initiative and raise awareness.
