Recently, Elwood Middle School held its annual Red Ribbon/Dignity for
All Students (DASA) week. From Monday to Friday, different events were
scattered throughout the day, helping students explore what it means to
love yourself, to treat others with kindness, and to always think
At the end of the week, the Huntington Drug and Alcohol Project visited
the middle school to remind students of the slogan, "Your Future is Key,
So Stay Drug Free." A photo booth with career-oriented props was set
up, and students were able to take pictures looking like a policeman, a
doctor, and other professions. Students also created drug-awareness
posters and hung them throughout the school.
The middle school’s Knights for Good club, along with the Huntington
Youth Bureau, PTA, and teaching staff all contributed to the success of
this week, and the district looks forward to many successful annual
iterations of this event.
