Red Ribbon Week: School Decorations

It takes such a community of people, all working together, to make a school great. I am proud to say that our school has a group like that. People who volunteer and give of their time, selflessly, to make things better for our kiddos. This week, our district is celebrating Red Ribbon Week to raise awareness and educate students about drugs. And to kick-off the week, volunteers at our school decorated the entire campus to go along with the theme "Life is Sweet, Drug Free".





The Red Ribbon Week decorations were designed by Jennifer Shepherd. She and her committee began working over the summer to create the decor. I can take no credit for any of this-- I simply showed up to help hang some of the decorations for a few hours. All of this amazing Candy Land decor was done by Jennifer and her talented committee.

Here is one of the cars, loaded up the night before decorating began.


And here is the drive up to our school, after all the work was done!



Inside the foyer, is the 'start' of the Candy Land. She used a hula hoop to create a beautiful draped 'chandelier'. There are large lollipops, sweets, treats and goodies along all the walls.







I love all the lollipops- made from pool noodles!

Throughout the school, there are several 'vignettes', with fun phrases to help the kids remember to 'say no to drugs'.  

Drugs make you nuts! 

Don't chew tobacco, chew gum!

 The Best Me is Drug Free!

All the lettering was made using glittery, shimmery cards stock paper and a die-cut. All the candy, hand-made too. Needless to say, I am begging Jennifer to let me use all of this again for Teacher Appreciation Week.  The jolly ranchers are made from toilet paper rolls!

She also created Candy Land game pieces with QR codes on them. The students can use their ipads to scan the QR codes to learn more about the dangers of drug abuse.




Be a roll model, stay drug free! (the tootsie rolls are made from toilet paper rolls too!)


 My girls got in on the action too- there was a poster contest for the kids :) (Because kids like crafty projects just as much as we do.)


I am so impressed with our Red Ribbon Week decorations and the women behind it all. Thank you Jennifer Shepherd, Julie Rockaway and the entire fabulous decorating committee for making our school a fun place.
