Harmon Elementary School celebrated Red Ribbon Week

Jack W. Harmon Elementary celebrated Red Ribbon Week the last week of October. Red Ribbon Week began in 1988 through the National Family Partnership in honor of DEA Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena. Agent Camarena worked to keep illegal drugs out of the hands of our nation’s youth. At Harmon, the focus was on how to keep students healthy by taking good care of their bodies. This included encouraging students to avoid drugs and alcohol as well as reminding them to eat healthy, exercise, and get quality sleep.

To celebrate Red Ribbon Week, students participated in a variety of activities as well as spirit days with various themes. Some of the themes included “hats off to healthy living” where students got to wear hats all day, “doing drugs is just plain backwards” where students turned their shirts around backwards, and “sock it to drugs” where students wore silly or mismatched socks. The students and staff all pledged to live healthy lives.

Harmon Elementary celebrates differences

Jack W. Harmon Elementary School celebrated what makes us special and unique with our annual Differences Week from Sept. 28. through Oct. 2. Each day, students were encouraged to dress in a color that supports awareness of different challenges some students face. This year, Harmon highlighted autism spectrum disorders, attention-deficit disorder, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy and sensory issues. Students had an opportunity to learn about these differences and participate in activities that help them better understand how students with these unique challenges may learn differently.Jack W.
