this past week, our kids joined their friends at school in daily themes, activities, and fun assemblies…
monday: wear red
“red ribbon day” opening assembly with magician
tuesday: dress up ready to dance, listen or play music
“tune out drugs!” the kids had a lunch-dance which included the hokey pokey, chicken dance, and limbo!
wednesday: dress up as what you want to be when you grow up
“you can live the dream…if you don’t do drugs” a presentation on the brain and effects of drugs, a visiting neurologist let them touch a real brain!
thursday: dress-up like a clown
“don’t clown around with drugs,” and they had a lunch circus! animal balloons included!
friday: crazy hair day
“don’t be crazy-stay away from drugs,” a closing assembly with miss utah.
