    We always do a lesson with our librarian about how we can be leaders in teaching others why it is important to say no! I would so get my guidance counselor involved with me on this!

    Great idea! We have never done anything for red ribbon week, great way to introduce it to my students/school

    We always have a Red Ribbon assembly and do lots of activities to get the kids to think about NOT doing drugs. We have a door decorating contest to see which class is the most creative. Our students come up with the theme and do all the decorating.

    Love the idea of brag tags to remind the students of staying drug free. Having a brag tag hanging from backpacks makes a positive statement. Here’s hoping I win.

    These would be given out when we do our biweekly drawing for students who have displayed positive behavior and followed the rules during Red Ribbon Week. The entire first grade(approximately 140 students) will get together and the teachers would randomly draw five names from tickets submitted. The Brag Tags will be given out as incentive prizes.

    These would be great for giving to the students in my class as I teach them about why it’s important to stay drug free. Kids love things they can collect and wear proudly.

    Red Ribbon Week is always important. These adorable brag tags would help emphasize what we are talking about and learning ! The students would love these! What a great way to enforce “Stay away from Drugs”- My 2nd graders would absolutely love these! My own boys would love these and they are in 5th and 7th grade! What a positive way to teach and remember to “just say No!” Good job ladies!

    It would be great to talk about saying no and then having them attach their new red ribbon Brag Tag on their backpack!! They would LOVE that!

    This would be a great tool to use during our school Red Ribbon Week. Students need to learn early and hear it often about how dangerous drugs are! I’d love to share these with my sweet students!

    I have followed your blog for a while now! 🙂 If I won, I would use these BragTags along with many read alouds regarding saying no to drugs and how kids can keep themselves safe. I teach 3rd grade, so I KNOW that my students would LOVE to wear these BragTags as a symbol and a reminder of how important it is for them to keep their bodies and minds healthy at all times! Thank you for the opportunity! 🙂

    I love Brag Tags! I would give these to my little Kinders and tell them it’s never to early to learn about saying no to drugs! 🙂

    I love that you are incorporating the anti-bullying tags with the drug awareness tags. These are 2 subjects that require ongoing interventions. We do have red ribbon awareness activities such as wearing red and signing anti-drug pledges, but I think the brag tags would be an awesome way to continue to deliver the messages beyond Red Ribbon Week.

    We would use the red ribbon brag tags as a gift to hand out to our students. During red ribbon week we borrow a McGruff costume from our police department and a staff member walks McGruff around to visit. After the visits we have a school wide assembly. It would be great if McGruff could hand out these brag tags during his visit.

    I think this is an awesome way to get the students interested in listening about the importance of staying DRUG FREE. Along with our Officer Friendly coming in to speak about drugs and dangers of drugs–this will be a reinforcement of his speech and it will carry over nicely into a discussion in my classroom. Thanks!

    I would give them to my kinderkids when they sign the pledge to be rug Free. We have a week long celebration with different days like “Sock it to drugs day” when we all wear mis-matched socks. I think it really makes an impression on my students and the stories that get told that week… well the parents would have a stroke! lol

    My kids live their brag tags and I can’t wait too add more! We wear our tags every Friday and then they will go home at the end of the year. My favorite thing is that they hang on our wall for us to have a reminder of the things we earn and are proud of! And being drug free, is definitely up on our list!

    I teach in a community where, unfortunately, too many of our students are familiar with drug use at very young ages. These would be such a fun, positive way to reinforce the important message regarding no drug use heard from teachers, police officers, and other adults. ! I teach third graders. They have such a strong sense of moral boundaries. The tags would be a wonderful reinforcement to their strong sense of what is right. It would be especially important outside of school, clipped to their backpacks , as a constant reminder to those around them that these children are going to choose to be drug free!

    These would be awesome for each child to have after we complete our Red Ribbon Week Activities. Students have to sign and pledge to remain drug free, so this would be a perfect reminder and token of pride! 🙂

    I would love to win this set and send it to my grandson to give to his teacher for his Kindergarten class. This is his first year in school, and I would like for him to learn from the beginning of his school years, the importance of Red Ribbon Week. Shepard would be so proud to take these to his teacher and share them with his classmates.

    i teach at a school for the visually impaired and these tags would look great on individual student canes! The students use their canes everyday to travel independently through the schools hallways and it would be a year long reminder to stay away from drugs.

    I’d love to win some brag tags. I’d use them as rewards in my classroom. Nobody at my school has even heard of them so my class would feel special. And who knows, maybe it’d be something that my principal would see and like and purchase for the whole school! (:

    I’d love to have my first graders earn one of these for creating a “Say No to Drugs” poster. Our school is in a very low socio-economic area and unfortunately these kiddos see drug use and gang violence daily. They need positive reminders to stay away from drugs so they can succeed in school and life!

    Oops…forgot to add how I’d use them for red red ribbon week. This is a week about not being a bully. What better way to be reminded about that than wearing a brag tag to reminded to be a buddy not a bully than to wear a brag tag! Other kids on the school would definitely notice than and ask. My kids would be able to brag about their tags and encourage others not to bully!

    I am the school counselor & also in charge of the committee that decides Red Ribbon Week activities this year. I do classroom guidance lessons for every class in the building on a weekly basis. I usually do at least 2 sessions of Red Ribbon Week lessons with my students–even though it may be before Red Ribbon Week begins or after it has ended. I would use the BragTags for student giveaways during our morning news program, which is hosted by students. We have different activities each day to celebrate Red Ribbon Week–announcements on our morning news (ways to stay healthy, make good choices, etc.), special themes (like wearing a jersey to school “Team Up Against Drugs”, wear a hat/cap “Put a Cap on Drugs”, etc.). The kids enjoy the special celebrations and chances to win prizes.

    These would be great for Kindergarten. This might be the first time someone has talked to them about staying away from drugs. They love when they could take things home with them. This might start a discussion at home too when they come home saying, “look what I got at school.”

    I KNOW that the students in our small school of 300 kids in rural West Virginia would benefit greatly from this wonderful anti-drug campaign!!! Here’s to wishing we had a way to fund the great bundle pack!! Lavalette Elementary students are the future of my community!!

    I am the teacher in the behavior and social resource room. I am constantly looking for things that will assist me in steering my students lives in the right direction. I would use these in conjunction with my lessons about substance abuse.

    I would use these brag tags to enhance what we already do for red ribbon week. This set of tags would make my class feel extra special and we would stand out in the crowd. I would also make our door decoration contest entry for that week go along with the brag tags. I really hope I win.

    Our school makes a big production during Red Ribbon Week and the culminating activity is a field day on Friday. These tags would just enhance what we are already learning and be on proud display by our students!!

    I live in a community where drugs are a big problem. I would love to use these tags while teaching about abstinence from drugs and hopefully spread the word around to more students who my my kids wearing them! Thanks for the opportunity!

    I am trying to convince our school counselor and principals to purchase brag tags to use with our school-wide behavior program. Winning this set for Red Ribbon Week would be great because I could give them to my students when we celebrate Red Ribbon week, and they can show them off to the counselor, principals, and their peers, and I bet they will see how much the kids love them and enjoy showing them off! 🙂

    Oh my original entry got all mixed up (above). Let me re-type that & please delete my original response.
    As a school counselor I will be teaching students about the effects and consequences of drug and alcohol use. Students will also be learning about and practicing refusal skills. I will be sending a worksheet home that encourages students to practice a refusal skill with their parent. Students must write the refusal skill they practiced and have their parent sign the form & return it to school to be eligible to recieve a prize. I don’t have prizes yet! These brag tags would be perfect because they reinforce the concepts I will be teaching!!!

    Our students receive tickets as part of our PBIS model for being “on TRACK” and showing model behavior. Then on Tuesdays, each class pulls several names for a reward. Our rewards are small tags for the chains that every student in our school has on their book bags. These tags would be a PERFECT treat for our students during Red Ribbon Week.

    I would love these for my class.!Well our school has a huge parade on the last day of red ribbon week where we showcase essays, posters, and other say no to drug activities we have done during week. And I would love to march with these during the parade to really show our position of saying no to drugs.

    My budget is so small for red ribbon week and our school is in a highly drug populated area. I try to do all I can for them with the resources that we have so something like this would be so awesome for us! This would be a huge ending and finally for our drug free week. I hope I am not to late! And I have everything crossed that will cross 🙂

    Sadly, we don’t participate in Red Ribbon Week anymore. I would love to win these just to show my students and of course the whole school what a great message this sends out. When my students wear these out, it would send a message to our school as well as the community. I would really like these to go with my unit. Please pick me. 🙂

     

We LOVE hearing from you! Let us know what you think.
