Today marks the start of Red Ribbon Week activities at schools throughout the Fullerton School District.

Students will be encouraged to take part in a variety of events designed to promote a drug-free lifestyle. At many campuses, children will wear red and tie red ribbons on trees and fences to symbolize their commitment to living drug-free.

Students at Sunset Lane Elementary decorated classrooms Friday and submitted posters and essays for an upcoming school contest. Hermosa Drive students will decorate Albertsons grocery bags this week with anti-drug messages and return them to the Bastanchury Road store to bag items bought by customers. Commonwealth Elementary has a variety of activities planned, including a three-legged race for the younger children. Students in the upper grades will run laps and then try to breathe through a straw to see what it's like to breathe through a heavy-smoker's lungs. A carnival is also planned.
