School Spirit - 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 ninth entry is entitled: School Spirit  
Red Ribbon Week, School Pride, Proud of Being Drug Free

Students and staff team up for the fight against drugs by wearing their favorite swag to school.

• Wear your school shirts and as much red as possible.

• Kick-off Red Ribbon Week in conjunction with homecoming, an important home football game, or another popular community event.

• Offer half-priced admission at a home ball game to anyone wearing a red ribbon.

• Make paper bricks, have each student put his or her name on one as a pledge to be drug-free. Build a wall to “join together to be drug-free.”

• Have students sponsor teachers and check to see that the teacher wears his or her red
ribbon every day.


“Just Say No to Drugs!”
