The DeSoto ISD Student Support Services Department will host a district-wide parent engagement for all families at the DeSoto High School Academy Cafeteria on October 28 at 6 P.M. located at 600 Eagle Drive.

The observance of National Red Ribbon Week of drug prevention and drug awareness is a campaign of the National Family Partnership. Their mission is to lead and support our nation’s families and communities in nurturing the full potential of healthy, drug-free youth. In 1988, NFP sponsored the first National Red Ribbon Celebration. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Since that time, the campaign has reached millions of U.S. children and families. The National Family Partnership (NFP) and its network of individuals and organizations continue to deliver his message of hope to millions of people every year, through the National Red Ribbon Campaign™.
