District Six Celebrates Red Ribbon Week with Young Singer

Red Ribbon week is celebrated across District Six Schools during the last week in October. Red Ribbon Week is an awareness campaign that provides multiple opportunities for schools to address the importance of staying drug-free and making right choices in life. This year students had the opportunity to hear from a rising Disney star Coco Jones. The 12-year-old singer/song-writer reinforced the positive messages of staying drug free, studying hard in school and being a strong individual, not easily influenced by peer pressure. Coco Jones, is in the running to win Disney’s Next Best Thing, a series that introduces a number of young recording artists and offers them national broadcast and online exposure. She visited Lone Oak Elementary, Arcadia Elementary, Roebuck Elementary and Fairforest Middle Schools.
