Exeter-Milligan School has been "rocking" this last week. We celebrated Red Ribbon week in style by focusing on the campaign,  "Our School Rocks, Bully and Drug Free".  Teachers supported students by decorating their doors with different drug free themes and tying red ribbons on each students lockers.   Elementary students enjoyed wearing a different color each day and discussing and writing about making good life choices.  Kindergarten, first, and second grade students worked hard putting cups into the chain link fence surrounding the playground to spell out "DRUG FREE".  Fifth and Sixth grade students enjoyed creating drug and bully free banners to display in the school.  The junior and high school watched videos including, "The Truth About Drugs" and "They Said, They Lied".  On Tuesday, student council members handed out drug and bully free stickers and fish crackers that included a drug free message to all students and children that attended the Pink-Out volleyball game against Shelby-Rising City.  It was a great week for EM students to learn about making smart, healthy decisions.
