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 positively.

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.
