Red Ribbon Week Kickoff Assembly

 Friday afternoon, Emerson held a school wide assembly to kick off Red Ribbon Week. After the special announcing of the Friday blue slip winners, the students listened to two wonderfully written essays by the winners of the 5th Grade essay contest. Kindergarteners gave their first performance, singing a song about being drug free.
Officer Mortensen from the Long Beach Police Department came and spoke to the students on the importance of saying NO to DRUGS! He even drove his police car on campus and gave a little flash of the lights and sounded the siren. He answered questions, posed with Waldo and let students peek inside his patrol car after the assembly!
 We had the spirit days announced: Monday- Sock it to Drugs (wear crazy socks). Tuesday- Turn your Back on Drugs (backwards uniform day). Wednesday- Shade out Drugs (wear awesome sunglasses while outside at school). Thursday- Drug Free JEANius (wear jeans with your uniform) and Friday- Let the Red Out (Wear Red to School).
To end the assembly, Mr. Snell and Mr. Gibson led the Emerson Eagles in singing the School Song which was AWESOME! 

Special thanks to the Girl Scouts who decorated Emerson with plenty of Red Ribbons and decorations after school! A Huge thank you to Mrs. CJ Holder who is our Red Ribbon Chair and to all the parents, teachers, staff and students that help create and keep a safe, wonderful, drug free learning environment at Emerson!
