Red Ribbon Week is a national campaign of awareness and celebration of healthy lifestyles devoid of drugs and alcohol. Red Ribbon Week also serves as a spirit week for East Hills blending the messages of our PBIS campaign (Respectful, Responsible, and Safe) with additional positive messages aligned with Casel's Five Core Competencies of Social Emotional Learning (Self-Awareness; Self-Management; Social Awareness; Relationship Skills; and Responsible Decision Making). While this year we are not able to host our whole school assembly on Friday, Oct. 30, we are planning some fun games and interactions during our social-emotional learning time on Wednesday, Oct. 28 - we are excited to continue our traditions in new ways this year to see if the Red or White team will earn the right to have Chris the Cavalier carry their color until our next friendly competition. It's a week of education, important conversation, and fun! Listed below is the dress up day information days!

Costumes for any of the dress-up days must adhere to the following guidelines:
-Costumes should be INNOCENT and FUN.
-Masks, hoods or other concealing head wear are not allowed for safety purposes. We need to be able to identify all students and adults in the building.
-Non-concealing head wear: cowboy hats, visors, baseball caps, tiaras, and other similar head wear that allows students faces to be seen may be worn.
-Dress code rules apply with respect to length of shorts and skirts, tank tops, undergarments showing, drug and alcohol innuendo, profanity or double meanings are not allowed.
-To avoid the perception of ridicule, costumes should not be of adults or other students in our building.
-To avoid any perception of offensiveness, costumes should not be of religious figures.
-Costumes should not be gory or 'bloody."
-PROPS SHOULD NOT BE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL - This includes light sabers, any replica swords, guns or knives, wands, etc. With nearly 600 middle level students, props become hitting devices or prime targets for students to grab or argue over.
Thank you for your help with making Red Ribbon Week a fun celebration for East Hills!
