Red Ribbon Week is a campaign for raising awareness among students and individuals about the killing and destruction caused by drugs in America.  It is a way to provide activities that encourage students to be drug-free.

At ECHS, the Peer Helpers, along with their sponsor, Ashley Trawick, work throughout the week to promote drug awareness among the students.  Each day of the week, students are given red ribbons to wear during the school day.  On Monday, the peer helpers coordinated and carried out a special activity though the health/driver’s ed class.  Students were given the opportunity to participate in a simulation of what drunk/impaired driving feels like and its consequences.  On Thursday, students and staff were encouraged to wear red.  And all throughout the week, the a drug free banner was displayed in the main hall for students to sign as a pledge to remain drug free.
