Last November, we updated you on La Jolla High Schools recent participation in cancer awareness week, No-Shave November, and anti-bullying week. This upcoming week, LJHS will be partaking in Anti-Drug week by promoting the dangerous effects of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.
Anti-Drug week, commonly known as Red-Ribbon week, is taking place on the school’s campus from January 27th – January 31st. The Associative Student Body will be hosting a wide range of activities to spread awareness. Events include handing out free red-ribbons to students, posting pictures that illustrate the harmful effects of doing drugs, sharing true stories involving teenagers using drugs, and giving “Hugs, Not Drugs”. Students will also be attending a Rachel’s Challenge assembly during the middle of the week. The Rachel’s Challenge assembly celebrates the life of Rachel Scott – the tragic first victim of the Columbine High School Massacre. The assembly covers anti-bullying, but features positive behavior, cultural changes, and how students can live their lives to promote a positive attitude on campus. Anti-Drug week will finish with a school-wide activity on Friday during lunch in the quad.
