Marshville Celebrates Red Ribbon Week

Mrs. Christenson's 5th Grade Class Poster

Last week our students and staff participated in Red Ribbon Week.  Together, we raised awareness of the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.  Students were encouraged to share drug free messages.  They wore red ribbons and stood together against drugs by dressing as a group each day.  This year we saw crazy socks, jeans, sweats, team shirts and even pajamas! To wrap up Red Ribbon Week, grades K-5 competed in a door decorating contest.  Every display was excellent and sent a drug free message.  It was tough to choose just one class from each grade level as the winner.  Our winners are:  

Kindergarten - Mrs. Hartman's class
1st Grade - Mrs. Honeycutt's class
2nd Grade - Mrs. Mill's class
3rd Grade - Ms. Dunn's class
4th Grade - Mrs. Phifer's class
5th Grade - Mrs. Christenson's class

A special thank you goes to our custodian  Ms. Carolyn for judging our contest. A thank you also goes to our PTA for providing us with our red ribbons and other fun materials for the week!  Our students are encouraged to remember that even though Red Ribbon week has come to an end this year, living a drug free lifestyle should be an everyday celebration.
