Elementary Red Ribbon Safety Fair
On Monday, October 21st Buckeye Trail Elementary school hosted a Safety Fair in conjunction with its Red Ribbon week for October 17th-21st. The fair involved six local organizations which included: Old Washington VFD, Quaker City VFD, Antrim VFD, United Ambulance, Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office,and the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Students had the opportunity to stop by each group stationed in the gym and see demonstrations, talk to law enforcement personnel, and ask questions. Following the safety fair students proceeded to the football field to form a Red Ribbon. After the picture was taken everybody sat in the bleachers to watch a life flight helicopter from Air Evac land on the field. After the landing, each class had the opportunity to pass through the chopper. The student body then proceeded to pass through each law enforcement vehicle on the way back to the building. Red Ribbon week features a theme each day in conjunction with staying drug free. The students also participated in a slogan contest as well as a door decorating contest.
