Red Ribbon Week 2023
This year's Red Ribbon Week will run from Oct. 23 to 31. According to Red Ribbon organizers, the campaign's goals are "focused on learning about the dangers of drugs and talking with students, family and friends in a united front to reduce drug use, drug misuse and addiction, especially to our young people." At LPUMS, the school held a Spirit Week, decorated the fence, made posters, and had school-wide, drug free awareness presentations. The Guam National Guard and the Guam Police Department also presented during our Red Ribbon Assembly on Oct. 31.
