History of Red Ribbon Week
Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. Red Ribbon Week serves as a vehicle for communities and individuals to take a stand for the hopes and dreams of our children through a commitment to drug prevention and education and a personal commitment to live drug free lives.
Red Ribbon Week also commemorates the ultimate sacrifice made by DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who died at the hands of drug traffickers in Mexico while fighting the battle against illegal drugs to keep our country and children safe.
Jackson School has opportunities to particiate in Red Ribbon Week by:
Monday, October 22nd – Hats Off to Being Drug Free! (Wear your favorite hat)
Tuesday, October 23rd – I'm Too BRIGHT for Drugs! (Wear bright or neon colors)
Wednesday, October 24th– Sock It to Drugs! (Wear crazy socks)
Thursday, October 25th – My Character Counts, I'm Drug Free! Storybook Character Day or Dress for Success (Dress up as your favorite book character or inspiring career to support saying no to drugs and bullying)
Friday, October 26th – Be a JEAN-IUS and Team Up Against Drugs! (Wear your jeans and favorite team’s jersey or colors)
Faculty, staff, and students say YES to a healthy heart and body and say NO to DRUGS. Spirit Week is for the entire school.
Instead of a Red Ribbon Week assembly, we will be covering drug/alcohol awareness and safety in classroom guidance lessons with Mrs. Bond.

Read Your Way to the Big Game- USC vs Clemson
Beginning September 24th, Jackson students can participate in a state-wide reading challenge. Each student will need to read 6 books and complete a reading log by November 1st. Students who return their reading logs to the library will be entered into a drawing for family tickets to the USC vs Clemson Football Game in late November. There will also be a school drawing for USC and Clemson items. Parents must sign the reading log prior to it being turned in. Good Luck and Happy Reading!
A House Divided Comes Together to Read!
As a School Nurse, I have been busy reviewing immunization certificates to ensure compliance with SC Immunization Laws. If your child has any shots during the school year please send an updated SC Certificate of Immunization to school.
Flu season is fast approaching. Here are some facts about the flu virus:
* Influenza or “the flu” is an illness that affects our entire body, including the lungs. As many as one in five Americans will get the flu each year. A virus that spreads from person to person causes flu.
* You get the flu from other people. The flu virus spreads through coughing or sneezing. It also spreads by touching something that a sick person has touched and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
* Sometimes you can have the flu and not know it. Here are some signs that you might have the flu:
Children and some adults may also have:
Remember that no medication can be sent with students to school. An adult must bring the medication in. They must have a permission form signed by the parent and physician to have medication at school. Thanks for helping us make this a happy and healthy school year!
