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!
