Planting the Promise The National project of Planting the Promise is described as such: “Planting the Promise is a wonderful way to celebrate Red Ribbon Week. Students plant red tulip bulbs during Red Ribbon Week in the Fall which bloom in the Spring, and serve as a reminder of the importance and the beauty of living a drug-free life.” This year’s National Red Ribbon Week theme was “Celebrate Life, Live Drug Free” and what better way to represent “celebrating life” than having our students partake in tulip-inspired activities to represent "Planting LIFE" and watching that life flourish! For Red Ribbon Week, our 3rd graders got to plant tulip bulbs in the front, Northwest corner of the HPLC building. Our 3rd graders learned that planting these tulips represents planting seeds of good deeds and developing healthy habits, and reaping the future rewards of "growing" healthy and happy lives. We can't wait to see them flourish in the Spring! Helen Paul Learning Center’s Faculty, Staff and Students greatly appreciate all the tulip bulbs that our community and parents provided for Planting the Promise. Thank you for helping us to celebrate Red Ribbon Week with this activity and helping to beautify our school! https://youtu.be/EzglK62Ncks
