Lexington District Three participates in Red Ribbon Week
Batesburg-Leesville, SC - Lexington School District Three’s four schools proudly participated in Red Ribbon Week from October 23rd through the 31st. The Red Ribbon Campaign®, which is sponsored by the National Family Partnership, is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in America. Started in 1988, the campaign provides a visible way for schools, communities, families and individuals to take a stance against drugs.
Lexington Three schools hosted a variety of celebrations to go along with this year’s national Red Ribbon Week theme, which was “Your Future Is Key, So Stay Drug Free.” These activities included numerous dress-up days such as Camouflage Day, Wear Red Day, Wear Your Favorite Sports Jersey Day, and Panther Pride Day. In addition, at B-L High School, representatives from the Southeastern Chapter of the National Safety Council brought special goggles that simulated a person being drunk so that students could see how dangerous it could be to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Special decorations were also hung around the schools and students wore red ribbons to show their commitment to a drug-free lifestyle.
