It's Red Ribbon Week at Robstown ISD and Robert Driscoll Elementary had a 'Minon' reasons to stay drug-free. The students took park in many activities throughout the week from Oct. 24 to 28.
The students heard and learned from special superhero visitors who shared special messages about being drug-free. They promised to give drugs the 'boot' in their western attire.
Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction caused by drugs in America. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities.
