Marion schools to celebrate Red Ribbon Week

‘The Best Me is Drug Free’ is theme

Marion Elementary School is celebrating Red Ribbon Week this week. Marion Middle School and Marion High School will celebrate it next week.

All students participate in numerous activities during Red Ribbon Week that focus on making healthy and safe choices, not giving in to peer pressure, and the importance of living drug and alcohol free. MES activities are led by kindergarten through eighth-grade counselor Kris Burkholder, and MHS activities are led by ninth- through 12th-grade counselor Mark Felvus.

Community members are invited to join all USD 408 students and staff on Tuesday for a balloon launch, signifying the community of Marion is united and rising above illegal drug use and peer pressure.

Please wear red to show commitment to staying drug free. The balloon launch will be at 2:30 p.m. in front of the post office. Come join area youths as they learn how “The Best Me is Drug Free.”
