Red Ribbon Week at Arroyo
Red Ribbon Week is a national celebration held each year to raise
awareness about the problems created by drug abuse. It all started
more than 20 years ago to honor DEA agent - U.S. Marine Enrique
"Kiki" Camarena and his informant who were slain by drug traffickers.
They had been working in Mexico to stop the flow of illegal drugs into
the United States. Here in California, there was an immediate
outpouring of support from Kiki's hometown community of the
Imperial Valley. And, the following year, in 1986, they organized the
first Red Ribbon Week to commemorate his death. The red ribbon
represents the pledge: "no use of illegal drugs and no illegal use of
legal drugs." The first national campaign took place two years later in 1988. And, each year since to honor Officer Camarena's vision for drug free communities - millions of Americans wear red ribbons or wristbands
to show their commitment to substance abuse prevention and the promotion of safe, healthy lifestyles.
Elementary aged school kids don't necessarily know much - if anything - about drugs, drug use or abuse. Nor do we
want to bombard them with things too sophisticated. So, at Arroyo, we take this as an opportunity to reinforce and
highlight the importance of making good choices for healthy bodies. We have a red-themed week filled with healthy
activities and projects. Thanks for helping us celebrate by having your kid(s) take part in our Red Ribbon Week....

Book Club (BBBC) on 10/29. To participate, students must
read or listen to the featured book and then respond to
the questions on the special BBBC paper bag. Paper
bags can be picked up from the library, or parents can
download the ticket here and cut and attach it to a brown
paper lunch bag. Completed bags are students' tickets to
the BBBC meeting. The featured book this month is Two
by Kathryn Otoshi, which tells an important story of
friendship, threesomes, and self-discovery. It's a quick
read but can generate some very meaningful discussion,
including among upper graders (and even for adults!).
Parents, if your child wishes to participate, please help
him/her get a copy of it. Remember, all Library Lunch
Bunch meetings are independent of each other so kids
can come regularly or sporadically or just try one!
