This year’s Red Ribbon Week will be celebrated from October 27 – 31, 2014. In Texas, it will begin with a kickoff event on October 16 at the Texas State Capitol, called the Capitol Red Ribbon Rally. This event will bring together over 1,000 elementary school students from across the state for a motivational rally and other drug prevention activities.
Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. The National Family Partnership organized the first nationwide Red Ribbon Campaign in 1988. Since that time, the campaign has reached millions of U.S. children. In 1997, the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (now the Department of State Health Services) began committing resources to ensure the continuation of the Red Ribbon Campaign in Texas, as well as the hopes and beliefs behind this grassroots effort to protect children from the dangers of alcohol and other drugs.
National Bullying Prevention Month is a campaign in the United States founded in 2006 by PACER's National Center for Bullying Prevention. The campaign is held during the month of October and unites communities nationwide to educate and raise awareness of bullying prevention.

Leading their respective campuses, principals work to create and maintain school environments that facilitate great teaching, learning, and continuous improvement. They set the academic tone for their campuses and maintain high curriculum standards, develop mission statements, and set performance goals and objectives.
