At Joe Walker, our counseling department offers a variety of programs to students in Kindergarten through 5th Grade. Some of these programs are: 
Red Ribbon Week
Red Ribbon week is an annual program for teachers, school administrators and students will work together to spread the message about the dangers of drug use. Joe Walker Elementary students, faculty and friends are proud to participate in a variety of activities that encourage everyone to make the right choices and say NO to drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, and violence. 

We believe it is important to educate our young students on the dangers of drugs and learn early, how to make smart healthy choices. We also know that it is important for parents to start talking with their child early rather than later when it may be too late. If your child is old enough to recognize words and images associated with drugs and alcohol they are old enough to bring up the subject. Statistics show that an average boys try alcohol by the age of 11 and girls by the age 13. When parents talk to their child regularly about the dangers of drugs and alcohol abuse they lessen the chances of their child using drugs by 42%. 
Stay tuned for more information that will be sent home to celebrate Red Ribbon Week in October!
