Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention awareness program. It takes place annually October 23 to 31. The students and teachers of Hawthorn’s schools are participating to encourage healthy, drug-free lifestyles. Throughout the week, they are wearing clothing representing different themes, such as wear red to signify your stance against drugs and alcohol, wear a hat to put a cap on drugs, or wear something Hawaiian to represent the theme: don’t hula around with drugs.
