Elementary Students Pledge to Stop Drug Abuse

There's a new force on drug abuse in Virginia, and it comes in the form of Elementary School Students.
WINCHESTER, Va. - There's a new force on drug abuse in Virginia, and it comes in the form of Elementary School Students. 

Stonewall Elementary School is celebrating their Red Ribbon Week. Organizers say its a week where students learn about drug abuse and how they can help stop drug abuse in their communities.

The school kicked off the week with all students and staff taking a drug-free pledge and released red balloons as a symbol of saying no to drugs. 

"Get these kids to learn at an early age that drugs, tobacco, alcohol, you know to say no to them because you hear even some of the older people say they started this at a younger age. If we could get that message out, saying now is the time to say no," said Dena Renner, special education aid. 

Stonewall Elementary is having other activities this week, including Tackling Drugs Day, where kids get to wear their favorite football team jersey to school.
