Counselor's Corner

Red Ribbon Week

October 21st-25th



For Red Ribbon Week, we will be dressing up each day based on the theme “Send a Message. Stay Drug Free!”

There are many ways to send messages and your appearance is just one of them. Get creative and send the message that you are drug free. 

We will have a Selfie Station set up for you to take pictures of your outfits and share them to your social media. Let’s spread the word that Cotter is a Drug Free School! 

Monday:              MEME DAY              Recreate your favorite MEME!

Tuesday:             Trend Day                 Show off your favorite (or least favorite) trends! 

Wednesday:       Wear Red Day          Cover yourself in the color Red to symbolize your pledge to stay drug free!

Thursday:           Taco Bout It             Celebrate being drug free by dressing up for a Fiesta!

Friday:                 Friend Day               Friends don’t let friends do drugs! Coordinate with a friend or group and dress alike. 

*All attire must follow school dress code requirements.
