“I choose to be drug-free” is the embodiment of Red Ribbon Week and what schools across the nation celebrate during the last week of October.

Red Ribbon Week is an annual event put on at Cascade School by the school’s Business Professionals of America (BPA) chapter.  The students celebrate and encourage others to be drug-free.

During the week, every day has a certain theme. Monday was wear black to ‘blackout drugs’.  Tuesday was wear crazy socks to ‘sock it to drugs’ and Wednesday was wear Cascade Badger clothing to ‘team up on drugs’. Thursday was ‘give drugs the slip’  by wearing slippers, and Friday was wear red.

“The most meaningful part of Red Ribbon week is having the opportunity to talk to kids about the dangers of drugs in a fun way,” said Cascade’s new business teacher and BPA adviser Cathy Workman.

On Wednesday, the elementary had an assembly put on by the student council.  After the assembly, the kids recited a creed and promised to stay drug-free. Then class by class they signed a poster promising to be drug-free. While the rest of the kids waited to leave, a student council member walked around and gave them each a piece of candy with the slogan “Choose candy, not drugs”.
