Pledging to be Drug Free


Red ribbon week takes on PRHS to educate students on drug use

Red Ribbon Week is a week across America where students pledge to be drug, alcohol, and tobacco free and PRHS was no different. 

Friday Night Live set up a booth during lunch on Oct. 31 for students to pledge to be drug free in exchange for candy. There was also a wheel students could spin where they would be asked a question regarding drug use such as, “what do shrooms do to your brain?”

There were also signs hanging around campus put up by leadership saying drug facts such as “Would you let your family vape? Drink? Or do ANY drugs?”

This school year administration has put an emphasis on addressing the drug and vaping epidemic at PRHS with new safety measurements and vaping forums. 

After walking up to the booth and repeating a pledge given by senior Savannah Putnum, the students would be given a piece of paper with a piece of candy corn printed on it to write their name on and add to the wall of other students who have also pledged to be drug free. 

Having Red Ribbon Week during the week of Halloween made sure Bearcats were aware of the effects of drugs in time for the holidays to make an effort to reduce consumption of toxic substances and become educated on the long term effects.


SPIN THE WHEEL: Senior member of Friday Night Live Estella Cano runs the wheel giving students the opportunity to win candy in exchange for drug facts.
TAKING THE PLEDGE: Junior Sofia Willoughby takes the pledge to be drug free and adds her name to the wall of candy corn.
