Red Ribbon Week

ECS will be participating in Red Ribbon Week fromOctober 28-November 1, 2013. Red Ribbon Week was established to honor Enrique Camarana, a drug enforcement officer, who gave his life in the fight against drugs. He was kidnapped and killed in the line of duty in Mexico City in 1985. The Red Ribbon became the symbol to reduce the use of illegal drugs and violence.


Our focus is on having a healthy and drug free life.  Age appropriate language will be used for each building. We will be having different dress days to show a commitment to school spirit and remaining drug free.  We encourage you to speak with your student about the following activities and reinforcing their decision to be drug free!


Monday, October 28 - Crazy sock day. Wear your craziest pair of socks to stay on your toes and be drug free!
