Drug Free & Dictionaries

This week was Red Ribbon Week at Holsenbeck. Each day had a fun theme to encourage students to stay drug free. Across the nation, Red Ribbon Week has become a major force in raising public awareness to help combat drug, alcohol, and tobacco use by young people.

On Monday we had Red Ribbon Week kick-off event with the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office. Everyone wore red and pledged to be drug-free.
