Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week is a nationally recognized and celebrated week where we can demonstrate our opposition to drugs. The Red Ribbon Campaign is a national campaign that supports the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s efforts to reduce the demand for drugs through prevention and education programs. Hopefully you have noticed the yard signs throughout the city of Homewood showing the community’s support of this national campaign in addition to what we are doing in the schools.

Red Ribbon Week

Homewood Middle School joins over 100,000 schools that will mark this week as
Red Ribbon Week. This is a week that honors the memory of Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, an undercover U.S. Drug Enforcement Officer who was killed in the line of duty in Mexico in 1985. Red Ribbon Week began the following year in his hometown in California, organized by family and friends who wore red ribbons in Kiki’s honor. In 1988, Congress proclaimed the last full week in October as National Red Ribbon Week. This year's theme is “Life is Your Journey. Travel Drug Free.”

Thought for the Week

“Anyone can find the dirt in someone. 
Be the one who finds the gold.”
