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.
