Celebrate Red Ribbon and Healthy Schools Week : October 23-27

Research shows that young people who learn to say “NO” to harmful drugs are less likely to be associated with crime, delinquency and other destructive behaviors. Partner with us by allowing your children to participate in our theme days as we teach our students to live drug free, healthy lives.


Monday, October 23- My future is BRIGHT and Red Ribbon Kick Off Day. Wear something red today or dress to impress by wearing clothes to show what you want to be when you grow up. Talk with your children about the importance of appropriate school and bus behavior, using good manners and being respectful to their peers and adults.


Tuesday, October 24- Cowboy Up Against Drugs And Give Drugs The Boot. Wear your favorite western clothes, such as jeans, plaid shirts, cowboy hats, cowboy boots, regular boots or gym shoes. Talk about planning a fun activity for your family. Please DO NOT send toy weapons to school today as part of your child’s outfit.


Wednesday, October 25- Team Up Against Drugs. Wear your favorite sports shirt, team jersey or college shirt and jeans. This will be our annual Basketball Shootout Day. Ask your child about what they did at the Basketball Shootout today. Talk about the kinds of things we can do instead of drugs. (Examples: exercise, play a game with family members, watch a movie, read a book, go outside and play).



Thursday, October 26- Say Peace Out To Drugs. Wear your bell bottom jeans or regular jeans and tie dye colors. Talk with your children about the importance of living drug free lives.


Friday, October 27- Say “NO” To Drugs Through The Decades. Dress in appropriate clothes from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or 90’s. Talk with your children about ways to resolve problems peaceably instead of using violence.


Thank you for your support and participation.
R. Crutchfield, School Counselor

SOCKTOBER is Here!

This year, BES will be participating in a nationwide program called “Socktober”. Did you know that giving something as simple as a pair of socks could change someone’s day? Starting today, we will be collecting socks throughout the month of October. Please help by donating a new pair of socks or a hundred pairs of socks! Bring the socks to your teacher and help us reach our goal of 500 pairs of socks. Every sock will help someone in need for the winter! Let’s do a great thing and help as many people as we can!
So why SOCKTOBER? Because every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets and need simple things, like socks, to keep their feet warm and dry. The number one needed clothing item for those in need is new socks, but people very rarely ever donate new socks to the homeless! (source: socksandsouls.com)
This event is being sponsored by the National Junior Beta Club. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact:
Mrs. Bailey or Mrs. Blaylock
