Ibarra Elementary Students Learn the Importance of Being Drug Free During Red Ribbon Week

Students at Ibarra Elementary School in City Heights attended a special Red Ribbon Week Kickoff Assembly on Monday with special guests Rueben Littlejohn, Chief of Police, San Diego Unified School District, Community Service Officer Patrick Wafer and McGruff the Crime Dog. A special thanks from Principal Susie Sovereign went to to Crawford students Kaitlyn Connally and Cuong Pham for their participation.

Schools across the district are participating in the annual Red Ribbon Week, Oct. 23-31.

Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. Formally designated as Red Ribbon Week in 1988, this event serves as an annual opportunity for communities and individuals to affirm their commitment to healthy and drug-free lives. The theme of Red Ribbon Week for 2012 is “The Best Me Is Drug Free.”
