National Drugs and Alcohol Facts Week: Jan 22-28, 2018

The Valley Academy freshman are excited to announce that they have registered YVRCA to participate in
national drug and alcohol facts which will take place Monday Jan. 22 through Friday Jan. the 26.

We invite everyone to participate and raise awareness to the risk of alcohol and drug use.
One way we as a school will promote this week is by wearing a certain color for each day of the week. We will
also be conducted a pledge campaign during lunch in which students can sign a school wide pledge to not
participate in alcohol and drug use. When students pledge they will receive a certificate and a goodie bag filled
with candy, facts, and a ribbon to show their support of National drug and alcohol facts week. Students who
pledge will also have their names place into a pot for drawings of various prizes. There will also be events
during seminar to raise awareness and knowledge of drug and alcohol abuse.
We hope that all of you will participate in our school making a difference during national drug and alcohol fact
week.
The following are the days students and staff will wear colors for awareness:

January 22- Red for alcohol and substance abuse *Chat day * Guest Speak Mr. Dalton from Cardinal
Innovations
January 23- Brown for tobacco abuse
January 24- Blue for drug recovery
