Mrs. Young's Red Ribbon Rockers

The First Grade students at Westside Elementary celebrated Red Ribbon Week this week. Students kicked off the week by pledging to be Drug Free. To end the week, a speaker from the Madison County Extension Office came and presented a program called, “Health Rocks”. This was a hands-on presentation about the harmful effects of smoking. During the week, the first graders did a writing activity called: Say No to Drugs, Say YES to… Here are some of their amazing responses: I Say YES to broccoli, I Say YES to reading books, I Say YES to being kind, I Say YES to exercise, and I Say YES to drinking V8 juice. What a smart group of first graders!   Mrs. Young Red Ribbon
