Paint The School Red - Ideas for Red Ribbon Week Activities

NIMCO, Inc. Encourages Red Ribbon Week Activities


Over the next few weeks leading up to Red Ribbon Week 2013, NIMCO will be sharing some activity ideas on our blog that teachers and community leaders can use to help students get excited about Red Ribbon Week. Many of these ideas can be incorporated in your school leading up to Red Ribbon Week

Our fifth entry is entitled: Paint The School Red

Red is the chosen color for drug awareness and is the theme color for Red Ribbon Week Activities. Allowing teachers and students to decorate the school is a fun way to get your message across.

• Decorate homeroom doors with drug prevention themes

• Have sign-up Red Ribbon pledges: banners, bookmarks, etc.

• Classrooms create signs for trash cans at school with slogan, “Drugs are Garbage!”

• Decorate your school or a special area with red ribbons, red paper chains, banners, posters, handprints cut from red paper, and other items that display drug prevention messages.

• Tie red ribbons around trees, fences, door knobs, and poles for the week.

TODAY’S MESSAGE

“To make our stand against drugs we are turning the school red.”
