Lourdes Catholic School celebrated Red Ribbon Week Oct. 25-28. The theme this year was “Show Good Character: Be Drug Free.”

On Monday, students were given ribbons to wear throughout the week. On Tuesday, each student was encouraged to stay sharp and received a pencil with a drug free message. On Wednesday, students and teachers were encouraged to wear red to Mass to show their stand against drugs and violence. Thursday, the school said “Boo” to drugs by wearing orange and black, and students in prekindergarten to fifth grade brought costumes to wear during the Halloween parade.

There were daily drawings for prizes with a drug-free message. At the end of the week, certificates were given to one student in each grade section who showed good character.
