I Believe in Me, Happy, Healthy and Drug Free

It’s that time again!  Red Ribbon Week 2019 will begin on Wednesday, October 23rd and end on Thursday, October 31st.  This is a special week designed to promote and encourage our students to lead drug-free lifestyles. The Orchard students and staff will be participating in a variety of ways.  A different activity is planned for each day of this special week.  Our theme this year is: “I Believe in Me, Happy, Healthy and Drug Free!”

Students and staff can show their support for a drug-free lifestyle by participating in the following ways:

Wednesday, October 23rd: Show unity against bullying and drugs. WEAR ORANGE.  Each student will receive a pencil and a bookmark with the slogan, “I Believe in Me, Happy, Healthy and Drug Free!”.

Friday, October 25th: Orchard has the Power to Be Drug Free.  Wear your Solon Spirit Wear.  

Monday, October 28th: Each student will be given a special wristband to wear during the day. In addition, all students will be asked to sign a pledge to have the power of being drug free in the future. Once a student signs their pledge, he or she will be entered in a raffle and be eligible to win a special prize on Halloween.  Ten winners from each grade level will be selected. Wear Red.
