Red Ribbon Week

National Red Ribbon Week

Be Happy, Be Brave, Be Drug-free

October 25-29, 2021, Kaiser Knights recognize National Red Ribbon Week, a week where students throughout the country focus on living a healthy, drug-free life. At Kaiser, students will be focusing on positive messages and themes of staying away from artificial substances and focusing on their natural high

Schedule of Activities

MONDAY - All Kaiser students will receive a Red Ribbon Week wristband. Wear this wristband to participating businesses for free or discounted items. Check out the list on this page.

TUESDAY - Kaiser students will learn the value of focusing on a "natural high" and sign pledge cards to live a healthy, substance-free life. Watch for those pledge cards to appear around Kaiser to make a school-wide statement! Teachers also have the option of sharing videos from Natural High, a drug prevention nonprofit that inspires and empowers youth to find their natural high and develop the skills and courage to live life well. Links to the recommended videos are on this page.

WEDNESDAY - School is closed for parent/teacher conferences, but we hope you can take this time to make a connection with your student(s). Whether it’s sharing the Natural High videos and having some open dialog, taking a walk to Hola Adios (120 Virginia Place, Costa Mesa) for the school fundraiser to visit with friends, or maybe a stroll in the Back Bay to reconnect with natural surroundings - we hope you make today count in way that is meaningful for your family. 

THURSDAY - Wear RED Today! Tell your Kaiser Knights to watch for a selfie / photo booth opportunity to pop up on campus courtesy of the ASB students!

FRIDAY - Kaiser ASB has selected a dress-up day theme "Dream BIG!" - come to school dressed as a historical / literary figure, famous personality, superhero, comic book character, friend or a person you admire. (Woodland students look for your dress-up direction from Dr. Nagy / your student's teacher.)

Then join us for our first-ever Kaiser/Woodland Trunk-or-Treat!

Trunk-or-Treat

We hope you can stop by the first-ever "Trunk or Treat" on Friday, Oct. 29th from 6-8p.m.! Join us in your costume at the Kaiser school parking lot (under solar panels) for treats, photo booth and fun with our fantastic school community! 

Dinner is Served!

Take a round through the Trunk or Treat cars with your kiddos and then grab dinner from Monkey Business Café! Monkey Business Cafe is part of Hart Community Homes which provides work opportunities for youth in our community emancipating from the foster care system. So let them take care of dinner and support an excellent and worthy organization!

Trunk Spaces are Still Available

Click here to sign up - Decorate your trunk/vehicle and help us fill the remaining spaces for our students to Trick or Treat.

The best decorated vehicle will win a gift card to Descanso restaurant for Plancha dining for 4 people!

Donations Requested

Can you help donate treats for our trunk decorators to distribute? Look for donation bins in front of both school offices. We would greatly appreciate pre-packaged, store-bought and non-perishable items. 

Trunk-or-Treat Tips

Stop in between 6-8 p.m. as your family schedule allows for a trip around our spirited and festive trunks decorated by families, teachers and community members. Here are some tips to make this a fun, safe and stress-free event: 

  • Come in costume - it’s a family event, so please costume accordingly
  • Encourage your children to visit all the vehicles in order once to save treats for students coming by the event later.
  • Bring glow sticks or a flashlight if you are visiting later in the evening.
