Red Ribbon Week at Robert Frost and JFK


In recognition of Red Ribbon Week at the end of October, the student council at Robert Frost wrapped red bows around the trees outside the building. Each morning during the week, Frost students reflected on alcohol and drug awareness and on “Red Day,” motivational speaker David Flood visited the school’s sixth- and seventh-graders, sharing his stories about drugs and alcohol to help the students make better choices for themselves.

“David was able to speak candidly to our students and helped open their eyes to some of the issues around them,” said Frost Associate Principal Gary Ramonetti. “One sixth-grader even told David that he was the first speaker to reach him.”

Meanwhile, the staff at JFK honored Red Ribbon Week by wearing sports jerseys as part of the school’s “Team Up Against Drugs” initiative.
