According to their website,
National Family Partnership, formerly the National Federation of Parents for Drug Free Youth, was established as a grassroots, nonprofit organization in 1980 by a handful of concerned and determined parents who were convinced they should begin to play a leadership role in drug prevention. Since its founding thirty years ago, NFP has devoted its efforts to the well-being of youth. Today, NFP is a national leader in drug prevention education & advocacy. Our mission is to lead and support our nation’s families and communities in nurturing the full potential of healthy, drug free youth.
Our elementary, intermediate and middle school buildings all participated in Red Ribbon Week 2022 that ran from October 23 through October 31st this year. While each building had it's own themes, all of them were related back to being drug-free. The themes below are what North Strabane Intermediate School, for example, used:
- Monday, October 24 - Students wore Red to start off the week with the message "'Red-Y" to live a drug-free life.
- Tuesday, October 25 - Students wore camping gear (flannels, boots, etc.) "Tell Drugs to Take a Hike!"
- Wednesday, October 26 - Students wore comfortable clothes (sweatpants pajamas, etc.) "Wake up and be drug free"
- Thursday, October 27 - Students wore clothes from another decade (tie-dye, flared pants, etc.) "Drugs are Old School"
- Friday, October 28 - Students wore a favorite team jersey "Team Up against Drugs"
