Red Ribbon Week at AES
Thursday, October 24, 2019
Athens Elementary School has been filled with fun and learning activities for Red Ribbon Week. Come and visit our creations on our hallway walls.
Red Ribbon Week is...
- a week created in 1988 by First Lady Nancy Reagan and Congress.
- a week to honor the memory of Enrique Camarena, who was a Drug Enforcement Agent killed in the line of duty. People wear Red Ribbons in his memory.
- a whole week dedicated to teaching kids about the danger of drug use, how to make healthy choices, and the importance of these choices.
