Throughout the nation, Red Ribbon Week is being recognized Oct. 26-30 to draw attention to the negative impact that drugs have on individuals and communities. Antioch Community High School’s Rise Above Alcohol and Drugs (R.A.A.D.) club is sponsoring dress up days and events throughout the weeks to encourage students to lead a drug and alcohol free life.


The following themes are designated for the spirit days:

Monday- Wear Red Day

Tuesday- “Drugs are Whack:” Mismatch Day

Wednesday- “Being Drug Free Takes a Team:” Sports/Jersey Wear

Thursday- “Be Smart, Say ‘No’ to Drugs:” College Wear

Friday- “Scare Away Drugs:” Halloween Theme


Students can also pledge to be drug free in the commons during all lunch hours and receive a gift. Raffle tickets will also be given to students that tweet a picture of your spirit wear by Oct. 28 to @antiochraad. On Thursday and Friday students can also get a red ribbon painted on their hand during lunch hours in the commons. Canned food donations will also be accepted in the commons during lunch hours. Together, ACHS is aligning to live a healthier, drug and alcohol free life, one student at a time.
