Ardsley High School is joining thousands of schools in celebrating Red Ribbon Week, the nation's most important anti-drug event. Red Ribbon Week has been held annually during the last week of October commemorating the murder of undercover agent, Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, by drug traffickers in Mexico. Angered by his death as well as the damaging effects of drugs on our culture, the people of Camarena's hometown, Calexico, California, began wearing red ribbons in his honor. The trend spread across the country and in 1988, Congress proclaimed the last full week in October as National Red Ribbon Week.
We can show our support for this event by spreading the message that drugs are destructive. We can spread our drug-free message by wearing red this week. We can also take a red ribbon from the Guidance Bulletin Board and attach it to our bookbags. Don't forget to grab a lollipop with a drug-free message on your way out of the building this week.
