Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week
 
 
Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country.  

Red Ribbon Week serves as a vehicle for communities and individuals to take a stand for the hopes and dreams of our children through a commitment to drug prevention and education and a personal commitment to live drug free lives with the ultimate goal being the creation of drug free America.

And, perhaps more importantly, Red Ribbon Week commemorates the ultimate sacrifice made by DEA Special Agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, who died at the hands of drug traffikers in Mexico while fighting the battle against illegal drugs to keep our country and children safe.
 
Ben Franklin School and Math and Science Academy offer a variety of activities in support of the message of Red Ribbon Week including; Spirit Week activities, guest speakers, poster and essay contest and other school wide events.
