Our IncREDible Week at Oak Creek

The Oak Creek PTA helps sponsor district wide Red Ribbon Week.  Red Ribbon week was a huge success  this year and our Wise Owls had fun learning how to ,“respect themselves, make good choices and remain drug free.”

Oak Creek “All Hands” Pledge Board – Red Ribbon Week 2016

To kick off the week, the student council and volunteers decked our campus in red ribbons and posters!  With Oak Creek spirit, our students signed cards pledging to lead healthy and helpful lives and also accepted a challenge to do acts of kindness for others.

As the week went forward, we wore Hawaiian clothes to remind us to “Lei off drugs” and proved that “we have the power to make good choices” by wearing Super Hero outfits.  Our students dressed up as their future profession, showing that they won’t let drugs get in the way of their goals.  as daily red ribbon themed prizes were awarded.

Thank you for all the pennies donated!

Our school collected a total of 447 pounds of “pennies for prevention” – benefiting the Irvine Prevention Coalition –  with Mrs, King’s and Ms. Lee’s classes bringing in the most!

The highlight this year was our “All Hands” Pledge Board where each and every student posted a hand and a new wise choice that he or she has decided to make!   We learned that when we stand together and support each other with kindness, we can be strong and INCREDIBLE!
