Marsh Grammar School Activities

The Marsh will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week from October 22nd - 26th.  Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States.  For the past several years, the entire Marsh Grammar School has participated in Red Ribbon Week activities to show support for this very important cause. For new staff, your participation is voluntary and the type of information discussed in your classrooms really depends on the age of your students and what you deem appropriate.  The websites below are helpful resources you may choose to visit to gain some insight into the initiative.  This is a fabulous opportunity to unite both the upper and lower school for a great cause. 

If you have questions, please let us know. 
Thanks- 
Stacey Zraket (Upper School SADD Advisor) &
Devin Deveau (Upper School Health Teacher)
