Red Ribbon Week 

 Each October, the Dodgen Community celebrates Red Ribbon Week.  In 1988, NFP sponsored the first National Red Ribbon Celebration.  Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to education youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities.  Since that time, the campaign has reached millions of U.S. children and families. 


Each day during the week of October 28 - November 1, 2019, there will be different dress up themes to increase awareness of a healthy and drug-free lifestyle:  


MONDAY: “Too Bright for Drugs” – wear neon


TUESDAY: "Stay Clean so Drugs Can’t Find You” – wear  camouflage 


WEDNESDAY: “Paw-sitively drug free” – wear Dodgen spirit wear


THURSDAY: “Costumes for Canned Goods” – Students who donate 3 or more canned goods can wear a Halloween Costume (see below for more info)


FRIDAY: wear RED!  All Wear RED with crazy hair because we are TEAM 


Guidelines for costumes include a school-appropriate theme, length/coverage in accordance with our dress code, and no masks or props.  Students must be identifiable at all times.   Canned goods will be turned into the bin in the homeroom teacher’s classroom. 


The Annual “Thanks for Giving” Food Drive in support of the Cobb Center for Family Resources will take place the first two weeks of November. The Dodgen Awareness club is planning lots of fun class competitions, etc. to encourage participation in this worthy cause for our community. On Halloween, we will kick off this food drive with a “Costumes for Canned Goods” spirit day. Students may wear their Halloween costumes to school if they bring 3 or more canned goods to their homeroom teacher.
