Life is a Journey. Travel Drug Free!

Red Ribbon Week’s goal is to educate and encourage Hawthorn students to make safe and healthy choices.
This year’s theme was “Life is a Journey. Travel Drug Free!”  

Students were involved in a contest to come up with slogans for the theme. Winners were: Madison Stamm, Collin Austin, Prascilla Pitts, Sidney Swearengin, Brooklyn Gorman, Kyler Gabriel, Shelby Loth, Zoe Ford, Kaitlynn Henry and Richard Chandler.

We kicked off the week dressing like our favorite decade, then banded together in our journey to be drug free by wearing red for our all school assembly. The Camdenton Middle School Cheerleaders did an outstanding job leading students in chats to be drug free.  Camdenton’s Pride of the Lake Middle School band played the flight song during the assembly. Cheer Captains and a band member talked to the kids about why it is important to stay drug free.

One day the school wore silly socks because doing drugs is silly and we were walking away from drugs.

Students dreamed of their drug free future and dressed like what they wanted to be when they grow up.
Finally demonstrating that Lakers are drug free on Friday Hawthorn wore school spirit shirts and showed our Purple Pride.
