Carroll ISD Celebrates Red Ribbon Week

This week Carroll schools are celebrating Red Ribbon Week, a drug and violence prevention campaign that takes place across the country during the last week in October. Each CISD campus has created engaging and inventive ways to raise awareness of these topics with their students, making it a focal point of education this week. CISD schools began celebrating Red Ribbon Week on Monday, Oct. 26 and will continue until Friday, Oct. 30.

Some campuses, like Carroll Middle, are utilizing videos to prompt discussion among students of the dangers of drugs, while Eubanks Intermediate has enlisted “Officer Incredible,” the campus SRO, to speak to students about saying no to drugs. Carroll Elementary had a camouflage day, promoting the theme of “you can’t hide good character,” and Old Union encouraged students to wear a super hero outfit to “be someone’s hero and stand up for others.”

The message of being drug free is spreading across each CISD school this week, regardless of the special activities or approach each campus takes. Visit the district website to learn more about the special activities at each campus this week.
