Today when I visited the school many of the students were wearing pajamas. Others sported baseball caps with their favorite teams or woven stocking caps. I asked the 3rd grade class why they were dressed up that way.
“Red Ribbon week” They all chimed in.
“Why are some of you wearing hats?”
“Put a cap on drugs!”
“So why are some of you wearing pajamas? Is there a theme for that?”
“Kids should sleep more!” volunteered one of the girls.
That’s probably true, but their theme for the day was, “Follow your dreams. Don’t do drugs.” That’s always our hope with these kinds of activities. We teach that early and often.
