Red Ribbon Week

Every year since 1988 the National Red Ribbon Campaign has celebrated Red Ribbon Week to focus the nation’s attention on encouraging our youth to remain drug free. Supporting this cause continues to be a priority at MHS. This year we celebrate Red Ribbon Week from Tuesday, October 22 to Thursday, October 31. Each day events are planned to educate and remind students about the dangers of substance use and the long-term effect drugs can have on an individual and their entire family. Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), a group charged with healthy, responsible decision making, supports and organizes our annual Red Ribbon Week at MHS. The group of student leaders meets regularly with our SADD Advisor, Ms. Rubino, and MPS Drug and Alcohol Resource Coordinator, Mr. Brouder, to plan drug-free activities for students to participate in throughout the school year. For more information about SADD and substance abuse, please visit our Drug & Alcohol, Resource Page. This year’s theme for Red Ribbon Week is: Send a Message. Stay Drug-Free. We encourage all students and families to discuss the harmful effects of substance use. If a student, family member, or community member has questions, concerns, or information to share, please contact us at (978) 722-6040. Together we can make a difference.
