Bill Brown Celebrates Red Ribbon Week

Submitted By Jason Gordon


Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation. It reaches millions of Americans during the last week of October every year. By wearing red ribbons and participating in community and campus anti-drug events, Comal ISD students pledge to live a drug-free life.

Bill Brown Elementary organized a Halloween-themed door contest during Red Ribbon Week. The first place door was designed with the theme “Drugs are a Nightmare!” It was created by first-grade teacher Mindy Schoenherr.

The second place door was “Listen to your MUMMY: Don’t get caught up in the web of drugs” designed by fourth-grade teacher Marcie McCranie.

The third place door had a bat cave theme and was named “We Fly Away From Drugs.” It was created by second-grade teacher Cody Segler.

The entire campus, or more than 40 teachers and faculty members at Bill Brown, participated.

The Bulverde Police Department judged the contest. A special thanks goes out to BPD Police Chief Gary Haecker, Lt. Larry Rakoski, Patrolman/K9 Handler Josh Estes and, as well as K-9 “Officer Chak.”
