HOT SPRINGS - The Hot Springs School District showcased its anti-drug
awareness and educational activities throughout the district last week.
Each year, the district sponsors a series of Red Ribbon Week activities to
focus attention on the destructive effects that drugs have on our students
The theme of this year's observation was "The Red Badge of Courage." The
elementary and middle school kicked off the celebration with an anti-drug,
alcohol message presentation by Duane Reichert on Monday morning entitled,
"Backstage with a Rodeo Clown." The elementary students made posters to
display in downtown businesses. Classroom doors were decorated and each day
of the week students were encouraged to dress up to show that they support
being drug free and each student received a drug free awareness bracelet.
