St. Mary Immaculate Parish school in Plainfield recently held Red Ribbon Week.
The Home and School Association Red Ribbon Committee organized many different themes to help students understand the negative consequences associated with drug usage and alcohol consumption. Students read and signed a Red Ribbon Pledge.
It read: "I pledge to grow up safe, healthy and drug free by: understanding the dangers of drug use and abuse, respecting myself and being drug free, and spreading the word to family and friends about the importance of being healthy and drug free."
These pledges were hung up around the building in classrooms and hallways. The week culminated with each class signing and tying a red ribbon around a tree on campus committing to live a drug free lifestyle.
