Willard School views Red Ribbon Week as another opportunity to encourage our students to make healthy choices in the areas of fitness, nutrition, appropriate behavior and building good character. During the week, student announcers will read messages about why making good choices is important. Students will participate in classroom activities emphasizing the importance of such choices. In recognition of Red Ribbon Week the following will take place:

Tuesday- October 25th - Students are invited to wear any Willard shirt or school colors (blue and white).

Wednesday- October 26th - Everyone is encouraged to wear red. Students andstaff receive ribbons to wear.
