Red Ribbon Week has wrapped up at Fredonia Elementary School (FES), and Mrs. Tamri’s fifth and sixth grade class took the top three winning spots.
Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, and students jumped at the chance to showcase their talents for writing and drawing. The theme this year was “How to be kind to your mind to live drug free.” Students were asked to design a poster and write a short essay incorporating the theme.
All of the entries were absolutely wonderful and choosing the winners was difficult, but in the end, first place went to Julio Coho (sixth grade), second place, Paris Bistline (sixth grade) and third place, Emberlyn Wilmarth (fifth grade). Each winner received a beautiful tapestry bag and a visa gift card ($50-first place, $35-second place and $25-third). For their participation the whole sixth grade class got bags that included candy along with other assorted goodies. They also got to celebrate with a pizza party sponsored by The Kaibab Paiute Tribe Substance Abuse Prevention Program.
Congratulations to Mrs. Tamri’s class for their hard work and willingness to participate. Red Ribbon Week offers a great opportunity for teachers, educators and community organizations to raise awareness about substance abuse and FES was proud to participate! Also, a big thanks to The Kaibab Paiute Tribe Substance Abuse Prevention Program for sponsoring all the prizes. It is deeply appreciated!
