Thayer Elementary and High School participated in an annual program called Red Ribbon Week that occurs every October. This program was designed in 1988 to create a national awareness concerning the problems related to the use of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs. Megan Pitts, Thayer Elementary Counselor said, “The national theme this year was ‘Healthy Me Is Drug Free’ and that this week was focused on the many aspects of health and safety in our classrooms.”
One highlight of the week was having an aerial photo taken by a drone over the football field. This picture had the students spelling out “Drug Free” and was choreographed by band director, Jason Rehm.
Pitts said other activities in the elementary included “Mismatched Clothing Day” representing how students should not get ‘mixed up’ with drugs, “Wear Red Day” for the photo op on the football field, “Pajama Day” illustrating a dream to be drug free, and “Favorite Sports Team Day” representing #teamdrugfree.
