Student groups have already hit the ground running this year. They are on a mission to empower their peers to engage in healthy and safe behaviors!
DREAM Team hosted Halloween DREAM Bingo during lunch on Halloween. As bingo's were won, members would read a drug fact and a quote to go along with it. They had about 375 students participate! The week prior, they also planned a RED OUT day where they asked everyone to wear red in conjunction with Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week works to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities.
SAFE Squad hosted a Fall Pep Fest with Friends of Rachel, an anti-bullying group, on Friday, October 28 to encourage SAFE decisions over the holiday weekend. They obtained involvement from students groups, such as Knowledge Bowl, DECA, NHS, YDYS, and Yearbook. Fun was had by the entire student body - even staff! They also held a Cocoa and Study event during finals week to provide students with a tasty treat while they prepared for their exams.
Sobriety Squad is hosting an awareness event on December 13th. They will be asking their peers to sign a pledge to be drug-free. Students will be able to sign up at school or during the home basketball game later that evening. During the basketball game, students will be tabling to educate their peers and adult attendees about their student group. Games and prizes will be involved so you won't want to miss it!
