Moriches, NY - November 26, 2018 - During the last week of October, William Floyd Middle School participated in Red Ribbon Week, the oldest and largest drug prevention education program in the nation. Led by school counselor Amanda Dubinsky, students and staff decorated the halls and grounds of the school with red ribbons and took part in various activities focused on making healthy choices and remaining drug free.
 
Events included “Sock it to Drugs” in which students and staff wore crazy socks to school and an “I CAN be Drug Free” collection drive in which students and staff donated cans of food to benefit the school’s food pantry. Students also signed a pledge to be drug free during their lunch periods. They also had the opportunity to view the powerful “Wall of Lost Talent” featuring photographs of famous people who have died prematurely due to substance abuse.
 
“We encourage parents, teachers and caregivers to use this week as an opportunity to talk to students about the dangers of drug use, and the importance of making good decisions,” said Ms. Dubinsky.
