Red Ribbon Week at Carmel Creek

By Alyssa Nash-Goelitz

Carmel Creek Elementary School held a fantastic Red Ribbon week Oct. 22-26.  Red Ribbon Week is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention program, reaching millions of Americans in the last weeks of October every year. By wearing red ribbons and participating in community anti-drug events, young people pledge to live a drug free life and pay tribute to DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena.

Some of the week’s activities included jump to keep your heart healthy, wear red to school, and bring a healthy snack. The big surprise for the students occurred Oct. 25 when the San Diego Sheriff’s Department landed a helicopter on the field. The Drug Enforcement Administration, San Diego Police Department, and Border Protection also volunteered their time to talk to the students about ways to stay safe and make healthy choices.  Photos: Maia Sass Lindblad Petersen
