Drug Awareness Assembly

Red Ribbon Week Assembly

Our Drug Awareness Assembly puts forth a power drug, alcohol, and smoking prevention message.  To engage attention and get our message across memorably, we employ magic, comedy, audience interaction, and for younger children, a little puppetry.  A study guide is included in our Red Ribbon Show to extend the learning into the classroom.

Winners Aren’t Users

October is Red Ribbon month.  It used to be called Red Ribbon Week, but today, many schools have expanded it to a month. Red Ribbon Month was started in 1985 when a Drug Enforcement Administration agent was kidnapped and murdered in Mexico by a drug cartel.  Today an estimated 80 million people participate in Red Ribbon activities annually.

“The kids (K-8) loved you and your drug message was genuine. It was an awesome performance.”

Donna Mueller, Principal, Valmeyer Elementary School

Prevention of Drug Abuse

The threat of drugs and addiction is very real in many schools.  Our Drug Awareness Show highlights the dangers of drugs and how addicting they can be.  We teach students drug prevention, and how to avoid getting pressured into taking drugs.  Some of the points in this wikihow.com article on How to Say No to Drugs are incorporated into our drug awareness assembly.

Alcohol Addiction and Alcohol Prevention

Our Red Ribbon Assembly impactfully conveys the dangers of alcohol to yourself and others.  We teach students strategies for alcohol prevention.

Prevention of Smoking, and How to Quit Smoking

Our Red Ribbon Program highlights the dangers of smoking.  We teach students smoking prevention–how to avoid peer pressure to try cigarettes.  We also impart strategies to quit smoking if any have already started.

“Our staff and kids loved the performance. The kids were doubled over, belly-laughing. You had excellent crowd control over our 300 kids. The Red Ribbon Week message was good and very age-appropriate for our students.”

Anne Bauer, Caseyville Elementary School

Building Self Esteem

Our Winners Aren’t Users drug awareness assembly helps build students’ self esteem.   Low self esteem is a common reason why youth get involved with substances.  By helping students feel better about themselves, we help them avoid the need to get involved with drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.

“You were great to work with.  This was one of our most successful drug awareness weeks we have had. I have received nothing but positive feedback from all the schools. I can’t wait to have you guys back again.”

Eric Seyer, Chaffee Elementary School
