You may find information about Red Ribbon Week and why it was founded by clicking the link above.
National Family Partnership was established in 1980 by a handful of concerned parents who felt they needed to play a leadership role in drug prevention. Wearing of red actually was in response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena. His friends, family, and neighbors began to wear red badges of satin to honor him.
Along with hundreds of other schools across the Nation, Clifton Elementary participates in Red Ribbon Week to lead and support healthy, drug free youth. Various guidance lessons by our campus counselor, Laura Cosper, will be taught as well.
