Red Ribbon Week

“Respect Yourself, Be Drug Free”

School Counselor J. Edmond always ensures that the Warriors take part in the country’s annual Red Ribbon Week. This October was no different.

Warriors take a stand against drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. The nation-wide observance began after the kidnapping, torture and murder of Drug Enforcement Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena in 1985. Begun in his hometown of Calexico, California, it has become a yearly observation at schools across the United States.

FCWCS students are part of the millions of school kids across the nation who takes an annual oath to abstain from the use of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. We wear crazy hats, crazy socks, and sunglasses to draw attention to Red Ribbon Week. They serve as reminders that we are “too cool to do drugs.”
