Counselors, Julie Basler, Summer Hagemeier and Donna Kientzy, coordinated Red Ribbon Week at Elsberry Schools for their respective buildings (high school, middle school and elementary). Red Ribbon Week is a time when  alcohol, tobacco, other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign is observed annually in October in the United States.

Students entertained different themed days to take them through the week.  Monday was “Sock it to Drugs” ware students wore crazy socks. On Tuesday everyone could be found dressed in black as they ‘Black Out Drugs” for the day.  Tye-dye was the theme for the day on Wednesday as the theme was “Peace Out to Drugs”.  Thursday was one of the favorite days as students dressed in camo for the theme “Be All You Can Be—-Be Drug Free!”.  On Friday students finished the week wearing red, white and blue as they “Voted to be Drug Free”.

The middle school and high school advisories and homerooms held  a door decorating contest to promote “Elsberry Schools Vote to be Drug Free”.  Winners were treated to root beer floats on Friday.  The doors were judged by Sheriff Mike Krigbaum.  Winners were  Coach Bull’s advisory, high school; Mrs. Gibbs advisory, middle school; and Mrs. Grossner’s sixth grade.
