Papillion La Vista elementary schools are taking full advantage of Red Ribbon Week to spread awareness about the dangers of bullying, drugs, and tobacco use.
The red ribbon movement spread across California and the U.S. until 1988, when Congress officially designated the last week of October as the first Red Ribbon Week.
Honorary chairpersons President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan helped give credibility to the holiday, which was also sponsored by the National Family Partnership. Today, more than 80 million students and adults in America join in activities each year to make Red Ribbon Week an important part of our student’s education.
Many of the schools have designated different themes for each day.
Prairie Queen designated Wednesday as "Be Smart - Don't Start" and encouraged students and staff to dress up as people in different career fields.
