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.”

Message from the Safe & Healthy Homewood Coalition

The Safe & Healthy Homewood Coalition invites parents to attend their upcoming educational program to get details on the usual suspects (alcohol and marijuana) as well as the “new kids” on the block. See common hiding methods, recognize drug paraphernalia, and learn how to identify signs of use and abuse.
