Red Ribbon Week, which was the week of October 24, is the largest and longest-running annual campaign dedicated to drug prevention. Beyond spreading awareness of the dangers of drug and alcohol use, Red Ribbon Week also presents an excellent opportunity to teach students about the benefits of building lifelong healthy habits, physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Penn-Trafford schools took part in the event, with each school adopting themes each day to reinforce the dangers of drugs.
