Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week is always a great time at Maugansville Elementary. Students have fun and advocate living drug-free lives. To promote Red Ribbon Week in advance, students participated in the Unique Game Show Assembly on Oct. 23. The Unique Game Show was a fun assembly that promoted sportsmanship, teamwork and fair play. Students were also challenged with teacher-created questions to check students' knowledge of the curriculum.

Red Ribbon week began Oct. 27 at the school with everyone receiving "Don't Monkey Around With Drugs" pins. Students also had an opportunity to sign a pledge to be drug-free. Students participated in drug awareness programs during the week.

In other school news, an Election Day parade was a big hit. Students, local politicians, Maugansville Volunteer Fire Department and the Western Heights Middle School band participated in a parade in Maugansville promoting the importance of getting out to vote.

Many students received small prizes for participation and support of Red Ribbon Week.
