Red Ribbon Week

Every October, Ponderosa students celebrate Red Ribbon Week and learn how to live a healthy lifestyle -- one that includes good nutrition, exercise, and healthy sleep. We invite you to get your whole family involved in “Celebrating Healthy Superstars,” and to help reinforce the messages shared at school. Thanks for your support!


Tree with Ribbon

Red Ribbon Week was created to honor Drug Enforcement Agent Enrique Camarena after he lost his life to drug traffickers. In honor of his memory and sacrifice, this week is an opportunity to show our commitment to health and safety, and our intolerance for drugs in our school, workplace and community. Because of the age of the students at Ponderosa, we focus on healthy choices.
