Next week (October 24 - 28) is Red Ribbon Week.Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco, drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States. Red Ribbon week started in honor of DEA agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena. Kiki had been working undercover for 4 years in Guadalajara, Mexico infiltrating a drug cartel. His hard work led him to uncover a multimillion-dollar drug manufacturing operation. Drug cartel leaders sought revenge for the exposure, killing many informants. Kiki was one of the murdered informants. Kiki demonstrated courage, persistence and honor in his fight against drug manufacturing and distribution. That is why we honor his goal, as well as our own goal, to have a safe and drug free community.
At Andrew High School we are doing a contest during Advisory for the best Drug Awareness poster. The CD Advisories went a little above and beyond to help spread the message. There will be voting by the Red Ribbon Week Committee next week and breakfast for the winning class.
On Wednesday, Oct. 26th: we are asking everyone to wear Red helping to promote awareness for drug/alcohol/tobacco prevention. In addition, during all lunch periods, there will be a Hockey Shot (Blackhawks style) competition for the students. Please feel free to come down and show off your puck shooting skills.
Friday, Oct. 28th: we will announce the poster decorating contest winner.

Representatives from Wells Fargo visited the CD High School with gifts for the entire continuum of the CD Program. Their donations ranged from school supplies, sensory tools, and even a wagon for a younger CD classroom. We celebrated with a small reception and gift viewing with all of the students. We are fortunate to have friends at Wells Fargo.
