This is the image for the news article titled Red Ribbon Week in BISD Oct. 26-30Red Ribbon Week, the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country, will be in full swing in BISD October 26-30. This year’s theme is: Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free.

This year, we are excited to continue our long-standing district tradition of the C.H.I.C.K.E.N. (Cool, Honest, Intelligent, Clear-Headed, Keen, Energetic, Not-interested-in-drugs) Club. This year, it will be a virtual rally. Fourth grade students from every campus will view a presentation full of positive messages about making good choices and reaching for their full potential. The fourth graders will also be treated to an inspirational message from Brazosport High School teacher, Jaime Moreno followed by taking the CHICKEN Club pledge.

Every campus in BISD will spend the week creating awareness concerning the problems related to the use of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs while supporting healthy, productive lifestyles. Activities often include themes like “socking it to drugs” (by wearing colorful socks) or “teaming up against drugs” (by wearing your favorite sports shirt).

Since its beginning in 1985, Red Ribbon Week has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing red ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction caused by drugs in America.

We hope you will join us in supporting our students as they show their commitment to staying drug-free! Check the link below for all the fun activities planned on each campus!
