Celebrating An Alcohol And Drug-Free Life. West Brook Students Embrace The Symbol Of Red Ribbons.

West Brook students spend the week of Oct. 22 – 26th participating in the National Red Ribbon Week, the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention program. West Brook organized a variety of events for the students to provide valuable information, resources and fun activities to help students with their pledge to live healthy alcohol and drug-free lives.

By participating in the National Red Ribbon Week activities, students pledge to live a drug-free life, something that is taken very seriously at West Brook.

On Wednesday, October 25th, the goal was to have as many students and staff members dressed in red. By grade level, the students formed a symbolic red ribbon on the basketball courts while eight grade teacher, Mr. Mazzo, courageously volunteered to climb onto a bucket truck for an aerial photograph. This was an uplifting experience for the entire school community.

Participation in this activity solidified a strong visual image from our school reminding us of the importance of avoiding drugs and alcohol.
