Red Ribbon Week October 24 - 28
Red Ribbon Week is a national campaign that was started in 1985 in response to a DEA agent's death, who was passionate in his pursuit to rid the United States and Mexico of all illegal drugs. His name was Enrique Camarena. The parents and children in his home town started wearing red ribbons to commemorate his memory and what he stood for every single day. Today, Red Ribbon Week is a time to educate youth about the dangers of drug use and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Glenshire's 5th Grade Safe School Ambassadors have been working hard to bring drug prevention activities to our school. They will be having assemblies for 3-5 grade and all students will receive a Red Ribbon Pencil and YOLO (you only live once- this year's theme) wristband. Each day of the week will include a spirit day with a dress theme as well.

- Tuesday, 10/25 Crazy hair day “Go crazy with your hair, but not your body.”

A healthy school environment is important for academic success and the long-term health and well-being of our students. When we improve the quality of foods and drinks that are served at school, we are modeling healthy eating habits and supporting the lessons we teach our kids about nutrition.
As Halloween approaches, please refer to our Wellness Policy to see what foods/beverages are allowed and when they are appropriate. Please keep in mind that we always take into consideration those who may have food allergies, food intolerances, and special therapeutic diets.
