Good evening, families of Vista Verde students. Vista Verde Middle School is pleased to host our first Supper with the Superintendent this Wednesday, October 22 at 6 PM. The event will consist of four 20 minute sessions with district directors and the superintendent on topics such as the state of our finances, educational programs, business services, human resources and district vision, followed by a spaghetti supper for all to enjoy. The sessions will be in English and Spanish. Due to the topics in the sessions, we ask that you please make alternate arrangements for child care as space is limited. Again, please join us at Vista Verde Middle School for supper with the Superintendent on Oct. 22 at 6 PM. We look forward to seeing you then!
Red Ribbon Week
HISTORY OF RED RIBBON WEEK:
• Shortly after Kiki’s death, Congressman Duncan Hunter and Kiki’s high school friend Henry Lozano launched "Camarena Clubs" in Kiki’s hometown of Calexico, California. Hundreds of club members pledged to lead drug-free lives to honor the sacrifice made by Kiki Camarena.
• These pledges were delivered to First Lady Nancy Reagan at a national conference of parents combating youth drug use. Several state parent organizations then called on community groups to wear red ribbons during the last week of October as a symbol of their drug-free commitment.
• The first Red Ribbon Week celebrations were held in La Mirada and Norwalk, California.
• In 1988, the National Family Partnership coordinated the first National Red Ribbon Week, with President and Mrs. Reagan serving as honorary chairpersons.
