Tiger Bites- Week of October 31st:


Last week was a lot of fun for Amelia Students as we celebrated Red Ribbon Week.  We celebrated our decision to stay drug free and make good decisions.  Each day we recited the Red Ribbon pledge:  

“I pledge to lead a drug free life.  I want to be healthy and happy.  I will say NO to harmful drugs.  I will help my friends say NO.  I pledge to stand up for what I know is right!”

I hope that you enjoy some photos for our fun “dress-up” days!
