In celebration of Red Ribbon Week, Emily Hoyt, St. Joseph School Martinsburg 8th grader, wrote the following:
Be Strong, Be True, Be Drug Free
A Brighter Future you’ll be able to see.
Drugs do damage to your brain
And you will be living life in pain.
Doing drugs will put your life in danger.
Be a role model, and a changer.
So at the end of the day, you can say,
“Being Drug free was fun today!”

My name is August Foster. I go to Van-Far Elementary and I am in Ms. Niemeyer’s 6th grade class.
People do drugs because they think that it’s cool but it’s not cool. Drugs can make you sick. That’s why our school chose the saying “Be Strong, Be True, Be Drug Free!” So instead of drinking alcohol and doing drugs, you should get fit, eat healthy, and stay active.
That means to me that people who do drugs have a chance to make things right, and people who are not doing drugs keep doing what you’re doing. Remember, “Be Strong, Be True, Be Drug Free!”.

In celebration of Red Ribbon Week, Layne Norris, St. Joseph School Martinsburg 7th grader wrote the following:
Be Strong, Be True, Be Drug Free.
To be Free,
You must be
Truly drug free.
To be Strong,
Don’t do life wrong
Because it’s not long.
Be Strong, Be True,
Be Drug Free

Hi, my name is Layla Ogden and I’m in 6th grade at Van-Far Elementary in Ms. Neimeyers class.
I believe that being drug free is very important. You should always be drug free. Drugs can ruin your life, trust me. It could be the worst thing to happen to you. Please never do drugs. If you do drugs you might never get into college. If you don’t get into college you won’t have an education. If you don’t have an education, you won’t get a good job.
If you don’t get a good job, no money will be made. So I hope that you believe that you should never do drugs. And remember to be strong, be true, be drug free always!!
