Athens Elementary School has been filled with fun and learning activities for Red Ribbon Week. Come and visit our creations on our hallway walls. 

Red Ribbon Week is... 

  • a week created in 1988 by First Lady Nancy Reagan and Congress. 
  • a week to honor the memory of Enrique Camarena, who was a Drug Enforcement Agent killed in the line of duty.  People wear Red Ribbons in his memory.
  • a whole week dedicated to teaching kids about the danger of drug use, how to make healthy choices, and the importance of these choices.
