Red Ribbon Week:  Oct. 23 - Oct. 27, 2017


Red Ribbon Week is dedicated to educating your child about drug awareness.  We all know choices are a crucial part of every child’s life, and the choice to stay “drug free” may be one of the most important your child will make.  Each day will feature a different message, highlighting the importance of choosing to live drug free.

This year Red Ribbon Week will take place October 23 – 27.  Thank you in advance for helping us to educate the children of Augusta Circle about making healthy lifestyle choices and staying away from drugs.

This year’s theme is “DON’T BE TRICKED!  DRUGS ARE NO TREAT.”   You can download the letter that was sent home HERE.
