Code of Conduct assemblies were held for Centre Avenue Elementary School’s second- to sixth-grade students of the East Rockaway School District, as a culminating activity to recognize Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week is a national drug prevention program that takes place Oct. 23-Oct. 31 every year.

Information was presented to students about being respectful, inclusive, and kind to create a safe and supportive learning environment for all. Students presented the “WE ROCK” slogan, where each letter stood for a characteristic that students aim to achieve. In addition, students witnessed a video created by fellow classmates describing the function of the buddy bench outside by the playground.
