Members of Shore Road’s RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) Pack Club hosted Red Ribbon Week, a national campaign to raise awareness about drug use and the importance of making healthy choices.

Under the direction of social worker Christine Davison, the students discussed healthy diets, exercising an hour each day and limiting screen time. In addition, they promoted the importance of being respectful to one another.

The RAK Pack took their ideas schoolwide by placing Red Ribbon Week posters throughout the hallways and encouraging their peers to wear red clothing. Students also signed a pledge promising to keep their minds and bodies healthy and then connected the pledges to make Red Ribbon chains, symbolizing that they will make respectful choices for themselves and others.

The RAK Pack Club meets weekly at lunch. Its goal is to find ways to make Shore Road and the Bellmore community a kinder place.
