On Friday October 28, 2011 Sopori School in Amado displayed their newly decorated doors for the Green Valley Elks Red Ribbon Week Drug Awareness theme "I Choose Not to Use".
Each door was designed to enhance the message to children not to do drugs.
There were 4 class room winners chosen and 220 children participated in this contest.
K-2 grades - 1st place winner was Mrs. Kleinholz 1st graders
3-4 grades - 1st place winner was Mrs. Rosa Alverez - 3rd graders
5-6 grades - 1st place winners were Mrs. Walders - 5th graders and
Mrs. Gettinger - 6th grades
Since both 5th and 6th graders did such a wonderful job of depicting the theme, they both won.
A pizza party will be awarded to all classes that won 1st place at a later date.
