Hancock North Central Elementary will be taking part in a week long, district-wide program called Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week was designed to create an awareness concerning the problems related to the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs. The national theme this year is “YOLO(you only live once). Be Drug Free.” Red Ribbon Week started in 1985 as a means of honoring D.E.A. agent Enrique Camarena, who lost his life in the line of duty. Today, Red Ribbon Week has grown into a national observance- a time for schools and communities across the nation to come together in the fight against drugs. At HNCE, we will focus on the many aspects of health and safety. You can take advantage of this time to open a dialogue at home and discuss issues like peer pressure and making the right choices for a healthy future.
