Sandy Grade School ‘socks’ it to drugs

Along with other schools throughout the district and the nation, Sandy Grade participated in Red Ribbon Week from Oct. 27-31.

“Schools and other organizations use it as an opportunity to encourage students to be drug and alcohol free,” Principal Rachael George said in an email. “At Sandy Grade, we had students dress up each day as part of our theme against drugs.”

Dress-up days included wear red; “team up against drugs” by wearing your favorite sports team gear; “sock it to drugs” with crazy mismatched socks; and “PAWS-itively drug free,” a day to wear school colors.

Sandy Grade students also received stickers that read, “Be strong, be true, be you, drug free!” and a pledge card to sign saying they would stand against alcohol and drug abuse during the week and throughout the year.

Sandy Grade’s webpage — http://oregontrailschools.com/sandygrade/ — has more highlights from the week and is frequently updated to reflect activities at the school.
