Red Ribbon Week: Oct. 22nd – 26th

The Red Ribbon campaign started when a federal Drug Enforcement Agent, Kiki Camarena, lost his life to drug traffickers from Mexico in 1985. This began the tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance toward the use of drugs. The mission of Red Ribbon week is to present a unified and visible commitment toward the creation of a drug free America. October is also Safe Schools month and Bully Prevention month. So this week, Saddle Ridge is honoring healthy and safe decision ­making that promotes success in school and in life.
