Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign that occurs in schools throughout the United States in October. Approximately 80 million people take part in the annual event, according to the DEA. The first Red Ribbon Week took place in 1985. FCWCS has been taking part since the inception of our campus in 2007.

School counselor Mrs. J. Edmond ensures that the program is held at FCWCS each October. Middle school students were exposed to the cons of drug use and violence during an afternoon assembly. Students took a pledge to be drug-free and to support the Red Ribbon Celebration by taking a stand in their lives–at school and at home–to avoid drug abuse and violence.
