Red Ribbon week is a time dedicated to educating students on the dangers of drug use and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Students at Silas Wood Sixth Grade Center kicked off Red Ribbon Week with the Huntington Youth Bureau’e Katie Delargy and Lisa Spatafora spoke with students about the importance of remaining drug free.

Students signed a banner pledging to stay drug free and wore red to acknowledge the start of Red Ribbon Week. Students in Ms. Hickey’s Art classes have created posters about why they choose not to do drugs. The posters are displayed throughout the school. Students in Ms. Aragones’ Home and Careers classes wrote Public Service Announcements (PSA's) about why they choose not to do drugs. These PSA’s are read during the morning announcements.
