Friday, November 4, 2016

YORBA LINDA, Calif. (Nov. 4, 2016) – Heritage Oak Private Education (HOPE) students took the pledge to stay drug, tobacco and alcohol free, during Red Ribbon Week and were supported for their efforts with a visit from the LAPD and an Extreme Sports show by Gale Webb Extreme Sports and Vans.

The National Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week, October 23-31 each year.

To show their support HOPE students tied red ribbons to the gates of Heritage Oak and each class made posters expressing how they planned to stay drug free!

The LAPD talked about the importance of integrity, honesty, and being drug free. Deputy Shaw and Deputy Lasley also gave a demonstration with their canine Deputy Beau! They demonstrated to students the powerful sense of smell that a canine officer has when detecting drugs that have been hidden.
Gale Webb Extreme Sports and Vans put on an amazing show, which included Skateboarders, BMXers, and Razor Scooters! Each athlete shared advice to students on how to never give up, follow your dreams and stay drug free.
