Students at Finley Middle School participated in a variety of activities when their school observed Red Ribbon Week during the month of October to raise awareness about drug prevention.
“Keep Calm and Stay Drug Free” was the school’s theme for the event, which began on Oct. 20 with students receiving red ribbons during their homeroom periods. The middle school children also created posters and had an opportunity to decorate ribbons during their health classes. In addition, they were encouraged to sign a banner and received wristbands for showing their commitment to staying drug-free.
Other activities throughout the week included a Unity Day celebration to raise awareness about bullying and presentations by the Glen Cove Police Department that encouraged students to make healthy choices.
