FORT JENNINGS — Fort Jennings Elementary School’s Red Ribbon Week themed “Life is Made up of Choices; Choose Wisely,” kicked off Monday and will run through Sunday. Students are encouraged to participate in the week- long campaign with special-themed days. Monday was “Shadow yourself from drugs,” where students wore hats or wigs to school. The “pajama party”, held on Tuesday, was part of the “I don’t sleep with drugs” theme. Today, students were permitted to chew sugar-free gum signifying the ”Chew away the drugs” theme. “Sit out on drugs,” the activity for Thursday, allows students to sit anywhere at lunch. Lastly, on Friday, students are encouraged to wear sweats or school spirit wear for the “I don’t sweat drugs” theme.
Mrs. Kaverman’s first- grade class has been ecstatic about participating in the activities. The students enthusiastically proclaimed that pajama day was their favorite event. Each day begins with a morning announcement instilling a drug-free message into their young minds, which spurs a lot of questions.
