HES Drug Free Looks Like Me

On Monday, 10/25, we will kick off our annual Red Ribbon Week (RRW)! Each day will be geared toward positive character development. Mrs. Lydia Trotter, our guidance counselor, has put together a fun week for us. Join us by sending your child dressed for each day and by posting your RRW pictures on the post for that day. We will be using our #HESRRW hashtag across social media.

Go ahead and start thinking of who your child will be for our Character Day Parade on Friday. You don't have to spend a lot of money on an outfit/costume. Be creative! If you already know who your child will be dressed as, comment below & let us know. We can’t wait....

  • Make a pledge poster outside cafeteria by painting handprints
  • Visit by Pickens Police Dept. and new K9 Boss on Tuesday
