• Red Ribbon Week 2013 – “A Healthy Me is Drug Free!”

    Red Ribbon Week focuses on educating students about healthy choices, especially the choice to avoid drugs. At Astatula Elementary, we want our students to be the best they can be and stay drug free! We will be reinforcing our drug-free message throughout the week with some special activity days.

    Thursday, Oct. 24 ~ “Wear Red Day” ~ Students can wear red in observance of Red Ribbon Week. We will also begin a “kid friendly” food drive to help those in our school and community. The classroom from each grade level that brings in the most food items will get a special Red Ribbon Week prize.

    Monday, Oct. 28 ~ “Our Class is Proud to Be Bully & Drug Free” ~ Classes will decorate their classrooms and hallways. Students will sign the One School ~ Bully and Drug Free banners.

    Red Ribbon Week Kid-Friendly Food Drive – October 24 – 31, 2013

    Our Red Ribbon Week Kid-Friendly Food Drive begins Thursday and concludes next Thursday. Following are the guidelines for the kid-friendly food collection:

    Please have students bring the donations and a completed food drive form to the front office. We will use these forms to tally the amount donated per classroom. Kid-friendly food drive forms are attached. I will also place extra forms in your box. J

    The students will place the food on the table and place the form in the basket.

    We will have extra blank forms in the front office for students who come to the office before reporting to class.

    The food drive will conclude on Thursday, October 31, and the winning classes will be announced when the final totals are calculated. They will receive a special Red Ribbon prize! J
