Campbellsville Elementary School students and staff members are celebrating Red Ribbon Week with several special events.
Red Ribbon Week is the largest drug prevention campaign in the country, and serves as a way for students to take a stand against illegal drugs.
This year, Red Ribbon Week is Oct. 21-25.
Events include special dress-up days and activities to promote the importance of saying no to using illegal drugs.
Students will recite the Just Say No pledge each day.
Monday was Everyone has a Name Day.
Students and teachers wore nametags throughout the day and greeted everyone by their name.
Tuesday was No One Eats Alone Day.
Students and teachers ate with someone new during lunch and made sure no one ate alone. Those participating signed an “I Made a New Friend” banner.
Wednesday was Favorite T-shirt Day.
Students and teachers wore a t-shirt that expresses something they are passionate about. Examples included a favorite movie, team, sport or music.
Students were encouraged to find new friends with the same interests and ask an adult to take a group picture.
Thursday was Random Acts of Kindness Day.
Students and teachers completed random acts of kindness all day.
A banner was hung in the hallway where students and teachers used post-it notes to give shout outs to someone who completed a random act of kindness.
At the end of the day, a random post-it note was drawn for a prize.
Friday is Purple Pride Day.
Students and teachers are asked to max out on their purple outfits to support their school.
Each classroom will select a boy and a girl who wore the most items for a prize.
Students were given Red Ribbon Week bracelets at the beginning of the week, and those who are wearing them through the week will randomly be given for prizes.
