FUSD Celebrates Red Ribbon Week
The week of October 23-31, 2017 the Fontana Unified School District will be joining millions of students in communities across America in celebrating Red Ribbon Week and committing themselves to living drug-free lives.
This year's national Red Ribbon Theme is "Your Future Is Key, So Stay Drug Free."
Red Ribbon Week began after the brutal murder of Drug Enforcement Administration Agent, Enrique "Kiki" Camarena in 1985. After Kiki Camarena was murdered by drug traffickers, the Red Ribbon campaign began with one primary mission - to reduce the demand for illegal drugs and illegal use of legal drugs. The first national Red Ribbon Week was proclaimed by congress in 1988. President Ronald and First Lady Nancy Reagan served as the first Honorary Chairs.
The Red Ribbon Campaign is now the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week, October 23-31. Wear your Red Badge proudly and have the courage to say no to drugs!
