   JJE Celebrates Red Ribbon Week
   Mrs. Buitron's ClassThe Joy James Faculty realizes how important it is to start at an early age for reinforcing a healthy drug free life.  Joy James observed Red Ribbon Week October 27- October 30.  Students participated by wearing themed clothing and by participating in activities designed to promote drug awareness. On the "Lend a Hand in Saying 'No' to drugs" day, students made an imprint of their hand and wrote on the hand about what effects drugs can have on your life.  A chain made of the hands was displayed in the school foyer to show our visitors our ideas about the negative influence drug's have on a person's life.  Students and teachers also made individual class videos on "Say 'No' to drugs; says 'Yes' to the future day. The videos demonstrated "What it means to be drug free".  The best videos were chosen from each grade level and were shown to students during their Encore classes.  Check out your student's class video on their teacher's webpage or the CISD homepage.
