*RED RIBBON WEEK: This week Steele Canyon High School celebrates what is nationally known as Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week is designed to raise awareness of the potentially dangerous affects of alcohol, tobacco and drugs on your health. This week show your Cougar Spirit by supporting the vision of Red Ribbon Week and choose to live a drug, alcohol and tobacco free life. You have the power to be drug free.
*RED RIBBON FACTS FOR THE DAY: About 10% of teens smoke cigarettes frequently (more than 20 days a month). Tobacco use has serious long-term health consequences and is highly addictive. A teen who uses tobacco for more than a year has more than an 80% chance of becoming dependent on it…. About 75% of high school students have tried alcohol. More alarming, about 28% of teens have had a recent episode of heavy drinking (more than 5 drinks within a couple of hours). The leading cause of death for teens and young adults is auto accidents related to alcohol. Choose to be Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco Free
