Red Ribbon Week

On Sunday October 21, a team of super dedicated Marshall Student Council members decorated the school campus for Red Ribbon Week. Red ribbons were tied in bows around all the trees and polls to usher in the weeks’ festivities. Colorful hand painted posters greeted students and announced the week’s activities. Thanks to PTA and Student Council, Marshall Academy of the Arts is ready for a fun filled Red Ribbon Week.

Marshall students celebrated the first day of Red Ribbon Week by wearing red. The slogan for the day was “Stop in the name of love!” Students were encouraged to put a stop to drugs by “Saying No!”

At lunch, Student Council students worked with PTA parents to host an obstacle course. Students, jumped rope, hula hoped, hurdled and spun around with their noses to baseball bats until they were dizzy, which made for a super fun and silly race. Winners received prizes and a good time was had by all.

On Tuesday, Marshall Students showed that they are “Too Cool for Drugs” by wearing their coolest pair of shades because “Drugs are shady!” At lunch, Mrs. Miller, from PTA and several student council leaders hosted a hilarious pie-eating contest. The contest was won by our very own, Ms. Kobiashi Lou! The student winner was none other than a sweet, little, sixth grader, Destiny, who came to show Marshall she is a contender!

Students paired up and showed their school spirit on Twin Day. The Red Ribbon Week theme for the day was “Be Like Me, Be Drug Free!” Students and staff creatively dressed as Twins. The three-legged race was a fun showcase of all the best Twin Day outfits as well as being a fiercely funny competition. 

“Go Ahead and Have Crazy Fun without Drugs!” was Thursday’s Slogan and Marshall Students and Staff wore their craziest hairdos to celebrate. Awards were given to students at lunch for the winners of the “Biggest Hair”, “Most Colorful Hair”, and “Most Original Hair” Contests.

Friday, October 26th sixth, seventh and eighth graders had a Blast at the very first Fall Dance of the year! Students were able to bring their costumes. At this spooktactular dance they had a Hoola-Hoop contest, Musical Chairs, and A VERY interesting Costume contest. Also they had a delectable amount of goodies and food. For our seventh an eighth graders the dance was from 3:45 – 5:00. This dance was a great way to celebrate our Drug Free Campus!
