Madill High School kicked off Red Ribbon Week (Oct. 23-27) with students dressed in school-appropriate pajamas on pajama day.

Red Ribbon Week is a national campaign that promotes a drug-free lifestyle for students. This week's activities are being coordinated by the Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) chapter at MHS. The chapter was created in 1990 by  former Madill teacher and principal Cindy Dodds following the death of an MHS student. Today, the chapter sponsor is Kelly Goff. All students were issued a red ribbon to wear this week.

The dress-up days are:  

Monday: Dream to be drug free. Pajama Day!!!  

 Tuesday: Get drugs out of your hair! Crazy hair day!!! 

 Wednesday: Live everyday with character. Be DRUG FREE! Dress as your favorite character or wear your favorite cartoon character t-shirt!  

 Thursday: Give Drugs a RED Light. RED OUT!!! Let’s see who can wear the most RED- Head to toe!  

 Friday: Keep your head in the game! Stay DRUG FREE! Go Cats! Its football Friday wear your black and gold!  

 *Clothing must be dress code appropriate.  

 Prizes will be given out daily for the best dressed students in each grade!! This year we have Pop, Candy, Gatorade, ear buds and phone chargers! 

 The two WACKIEST students each day will be treated to “LUNCH OUT ON THE TOWN” on Friday!
