St. Agnes students celebrate Red Ribbon Week

St. Agnes School celebrated Red Ribbon Week Oct. 24 through Oct. 28, providing a chance to learn about healthy lifestyles and pledge to be Drug Free.
 
To encourage service to others, the students pledged to be ‘PAWS-itively Drug Free’. The students collected over 40 lbs of cat food as well as 100 lbs of cat litter plus cat and dog treats to donate to the Livingston County Humane Society. They also collected $150 to purchase a blanket, lead ropes and medicine for The Heritage Acres Horse Rescue Farm.
 
The students planted 100 tulip bulbs around the monument in Circle Park in Avon – to ‘Plant the Promise to be Drug Free’.
St. Agnes School students also put their handprints on a banner pledging to ‘Keep Our Hands Off Drugs’. The banner will be displayed at Tops Market in Avon.
 
Students in grades 3-5 also create posters about Drug and Alcohol Abuse Awareness as part of a poster contest sponsored by Mr. Donald Drexler.
