We will celebrate Red Ribbon Week from October 24-31.  Our message to students is to make the choice to stay drug, alcohol and tobacco free.  To make good choices, students need to learn the importance of responsibility.  We will still have a few dress up days, but will also assign a few tasks next week to promote being responsible!  Please encourage your child to participate!  You may email pictures to me at whisenj@magnetcove.k12.ar.us  or to your child’s teacher.  See the elementary school newsletter for full details!
