The students, faculty, and staff at Merriwether Elementary School celebrated Red Ribbon Week in grand fashion last week. Red Ribbon Week is an event organized and sponsored by the National Family Partnership, during which students pledge to lead drug-free lives. It serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities.

Meagan Maness, school counselor, had the students and teachers vote on themed dress-up days. Each day of the week had a different theme that showed our students are pledging to be drug free. Wednesday was "Give Drugs the Boot" day. All of the teachers and students dressed in their best western wear to show they were stomping out drugs. "The theme days are a way fun for our elementary students to participate in the Red Ribbon Campaign. It's so important that our children learn at an early age the dangers of drugs," explained Maness. "We are helping to develop world class citizens by teaching our children that drug-free lives give them more opportunities to be successful and to make a difference in our society," Maness explained.
