Red Ribbon Week October 21-25 Spreads
Choose to Be Drug Free Message

Children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42 percent less likely to use drugs than those who don't, according to the National Family Partnership. Yet only a quarter of teens report having these conversations.

During Mesquite ISD’s Red Ribbon Week October 21-25, all schools will be providing drug prevention education. Every student will receive a Choose to Be Drug Free pencil, and each campus will hold Red Ribbon Week activities appropriate for the ages of their students.

Learn more about Red Ribbon Week and get resources to help you lead an anti-drug discussion if you haven’t already.
