Gribbin School kicked off Red Ribbon Week with an assembly presented by members of the City of Glen Cove Police Department.

At the assembly, Police Sergeant Ryan Nardone and Officer Ted Karousos gave a PowerPoint presentation about staying drug-free and making healthy choices. Ashley Ferrufino from Glen Cove SAFE was also in attendance to honor the winners of the Red Ribbon Week Art Contest. In addition to the presentations, the students sang "Dare to Be Drug-Free," under the direction of music teacher JoAnn Criblez.
