Substance abuse prevention and positive decision making defined the message of the day as Marcellus Senior High School and Driver Middle School in the Marcellus Central School District celebrated Red Ribbon Week Oct. 25 through 29. Red Ribbon Week was established nationally in 1998 to celebrate and continue to remind both children and adults to remain drug free. This year's Red Ribbon activities reflected a "Peace out to Drugs" theme. The Red Ribbon Week event at Marcellus Senior High School was initiated and facilitated by the Students Against Destructive Decisions organization. Faculty adviser Laurie Updike worked with the student group to create a week of daily themed activities which included:
Monday: Tie Dye Day - "Say Peace Out to Drugs"
Tuesday: Camo Day - "Be a hero every day, say no to drugs"
Wednesday: Sunglasses Day - "Shade out drugs"
Thursday: Jersey Day - "Keep your head in the game without drugs"
Friday: Red Out Day - "Keep the drugs out"
Red Ribbon Week activities at Driver Middle School were facilitated by DMS counselor Lorraine Reynolds.
