_________________________________________________________________________

Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. Waco High kicked off Red Ribbon Week with the Student Council tying red ribbons around the trees at Waco High to symbolize Waco High’s support of a drug-free campus. During lunch time on Tuesday, 10/28/14, Communities In Schools will be handing out Red Ribbon Week Awareness wrist bands to the students to wear during the week. Also, on Thursday, 10/30/14, during lunch, Communities In Schools along with VOICE will be educating and encouraging students to sign the Red Ribbon Week banner and commit to staying drug-free. Red Ribbon Week is important for Waco  High School students because of the negative affects drugs have on students and their success in High School. 

The following are some statistics that demonstrate the dangers of student drug use: 

“90% of addictions start in the teen years” (2012 CASA Columbia) 
“Prescription medicines are now the most commonly abused drugs among 12 to 13 year olds” (NSDUH 2012) 
“More Americans die from drug overdoses than in car crashes, and this increasing trend is driven by Rx painkillers” (CDC)
