Pilot Mountain school notes Red Ribbon week

Pilot Mountain Elementary participated in Red Ribbon Week recently, an annual observance to raise awareness of drug and alcohol prevention.

Students and staff at Pilot Mountain Elementary participated by having themed dress-up days each day of the week.

On Monday, the theme was country music day. Students and staff were asked to dress up as their favorite country music star to “give drugs the boot.”

On Tuesday, each grade was asked to wear a different color to “team up against drugs.”

Wacky Tacky Day was on Wednesday to encourage students to “not get mixed up with drugs.”

Thursday was Grandparent Day because “drugs are old school.” Students and staff dressed up as grandparents on this day.

The school finished up the week with Pirate Pride Day on Friday.
