This week is Red Ribbon Week brought to you by Students Against Destructive Decisions!
It is a time that community groups, governments, and businesses commit to creating a healthy, drug free future for America. Since 1988, students have made commitments during this national celebration to the intolerance of the illegal use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs. We also focus on making healthy choices.
Tuesday (11-7) Theme: “Do-nut do drugs. They put holes in your brain!”
Enjoy donut holes by the student entrance today! And today we are having a healthy eats contest! Tweet a picture of any healthy meal you eat today @assumption_SADD and we will make a poll for the top pics to choose a winner!
Wednesday (11-8) Theme: “Only Dum-Dums do drugs”
Pledge to be drug and alcohol free on the sign at lunch and receive a Dum-Dum! Today we choose the winner from the healthy meal challenge, so hopefully you tweeted your healthy meal to assumption_SADD!
Thursday (11-9) Theme: “Decisions and Consequences”
Today will be a theater simulation of the consequences of negative decisions over the intercom at the beginning of classes.
Friday (11-10) Theme: “Know Your Stuff”

Happy Red Ribbon Week!
If you are planning to go to college next year, there are some important changes in the financial aid process that you should know about. Students can file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or the FAFSA, starting on October 1st — which means the form is available NOW. Every college has its own deadline for the FAFSA, so check in with the schools you applied to and make sure you don’t miss that date. Filing the FAFSA early means you have more time to make your final decisions about where you’re going to school, so get your FAFSA filed ASAP. See the school counselor’s office if you need help or have questions.
