This week’s Mickle Mission is……………..Thank your teacher for something.
*The Red Ribbon Campaign is now the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week each year. This year Mickle will celebrate Red Ribbon Week Monday, Oct 21- Friday, Oct 25. RRW is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. This year’s national theme: Send a message, Stay Drug Free. During RRW students are invited to dress up each day based on a predetermined theme (see below). Other activities will take place throughout the week. We encourage families to discuss healthy choices and the dangers of drugs.
- Monday 21: Red Ribbon Week Kick-Off: RED OUT
- Tuesday 22: Stay in the Game-Stay Drug Free. Wear a shirt or outfit from your favorite sports team/athlete or activity
- Wednesday 23: Sock it to Drugs & Pink Out for Breast Cancer Awareness. Wear crazy, fun, or mismatched socks & PINK
- Thursday 24: Living Drug Free is No Sweat. Wear sweat pants and/or a sweatshirt
- Friday 25: You have the POWER to stay drug free. Wear Superhero gear
*THIS WEEK IS NATIONAL RED RIBBON WEEK
Kids hear about drugs everywhere, it seems: on TV, the radio, and the news; in music and movies; and sometimes even on the street or on the playground. Research shows that when parents tell their kids they don’t want them to do drugs, the kids are less likely to do drugs.
The teen years are the most likely time for someone to start taking drugs. And starting drug use as a teen can lead to drug problems when they grow up.
There are many things you can do to help your children stay away from drugs and make good choices:
• Talk with your children about drugs. Explain how taking drugs can hurt their health, their friends and family, and their future. Tell them you don’t want them to do drugs.
• Be a part of their lives. Spend time together. Even when times are hard, kids can make it when they know that the adults in their lives care about them.
• Know where your children are and what they’re doing. Keeping track of your children helps you protect them. It gives them fewer chances to get into drugs.
• Set clear rules and enforce them fairly. Kids need rules they can count on. That is how they learn for themselves what is safe and what can get them in trouble.
• Be a good example for your children. You might not think so, but kids look up to their parents. Show them how you get along with people and deal with stress, so they can learn how to do it.
• Teach your children how to refuse drugs. Kids often do drugs just to fit in with the other kids. Help them practice how to say no if someone offers them drugs.
• Make your home safe. Do not have people in the house who abuse drugs and alcohol. Keep track of medicines and cleaning products.
Monday, October 21, is an Elementary Plan Day, which means it will be a regular school day for Mickle students.
