Throughout the country, schools and communities are reminded of the dangers of drugs and the importance of education during this special time of the year.  Bells Elementary celebrated the importance of leading a drug-free life by observing the following ‘spirit’ days during the week of October 24-26, 2016-

*Our Student Council is sponsoring a Socktober sock drive to collect much needed socks for the homeless.          

Parents were encouraged to participate by displaying red ribbons and talking to their children about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.  They received information about the week as well as resources that could help them support the efforts beyond school and into their homes and our community.  Red Ribbon Week serves as a vehicle for communities and individuals to take a stand for the hopes and dreams of our children through a commitment to drug prevention and education and a personal commitment to live drug free lives with the ultimate goal being the creation of drug free America.
