Red Ribbon Week
Monday, October 27 through Friday, October 31 is Red Ribbon Week at Aikahi Elementary. The Student Council is sponsoring this activity to encourage all students to
commit to living a drug-free life. Each day of the week is highlighted with a drug-free theme. Students and staff are encouraged to dress each day following the theme
for the day. Each class will receive a bag with stickers and a pencil which are to be given to each child as another reminder to live life drug-free. The themes for the week are:
Monday (10/27) - "I Pledge To Be Drug-Free" - wear something red
Tuesday (10/28) - "Follow Your Dreams-Don't Do Drugs" - wear your favorite pajamas
Wednesday (10/29) - "I 'Mustache" You Not To Do Drugs" - wear a mustache
Thursday - (10/30) "Hair's To A Drug-Free Life" - wear your craziest hairdo
Friday - (10/31) "My Character Counts, I'm Drug Free" - dress up as your favorite movie or book character (perfect for Halloween!)
Please encourage your children to dress up each day to show their support.
Keeping `Aikahi School’s environment safe for our students and community is a priority! Please be mindful of adhering to safe driving practices as you commute to and from school.
