Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week 2017 - October 23-27

This year, Baker elementary students will be learning how to make healthy choices for the entire month of October. This will include education on bullying as well as how to stay drug free! This will be done through the school counseileng curriculum and morning announcements - brought to you by your very own student led News Team!

As part of Red Ribbon week, the students will be invited to participate in dress up days. A t-shirt order form went hom at the end of September for everyone to have the opportunity to order their very own drug free shirt to wear for one of our dress up days (any any school day during the year to show their school spirit!) Below is an image of what the shirts will look like.
