Drug Free Looks Like Me!
Beaumont ISD students celebrated National Red Ribbon Week October 25-29. The 2021 theme "Drug-Free Looks Like Me" is a reminder that Americans across the country make significant daily contributions to their communities by being the best they can be because they live drug-free.
Campuses marked the week with theme days, parades, art contests and other special events. Amelia students dressed up as "nerds" who were "too smart to do drugs." Superheroes were spotted at Blanchette because "real heroes don't do drugs." Bingman students teamed up against drugs wearing sports jerseys. And, Curtis students "put a cap on drugs" by wearing hats.
Staff and students wore red and had a balloon release to pledge no to drugs to kick off the week at Charlton-Pollard. Nora Trahan, Human Services Specialist with the Spindletop Center, spoke at a campus-wide assembly, and they started a poster contest.
At the Taylor Career and Technology Center, students signed a pledge banner to stay drug-free. They also had special days like "Redy" to be drug-free with staff and students in red and STOMP out Drugs wearing boots.
Some of the other recognitions included Camo Day at Fletcher, Career Dress at Homer Drive, Book Character Day at Jones-Clark, Backwards Day at Martin, Escape Games and Trivia at Pietzsch-MacArthur, Duo Day at Marshall, Disney Day at Regina-Howell, Elderly Dress-Up Day at Vincent, 90's Day at Beaumont United and Teacher/Student Swap Day at Early College High School.
The District encourages parents and guardians to discuss the issues of drug and substance abuse issues with their children and help us keep BISD DRUG FREE!
