Chillicothe Elementary Center celebrated Red Ribbon Week with the theme “Rocking to a Drug Free Beat.” 

As part of the week’s activities, CEC students wrote raps to encourage kids to stay off drugs. 

Chanting their verse, students shared their message with classmates. 

The following are some of the classroom winners:

Third Grade – Payton Morris
Come on, Come on, Follow me
To a place where it is drug free
Please don’t hang out with the girls and boys
That don’t make the right choice
You’re cool, just don’t be a fool
Just say, I’m drug free.

Third Grade – Casy Grove, Katie McMorrow, Abby Camp and Hannah Benson
Say NO to drugs
Say NO to drugs
Say what, say what, they make you feel bad
Say what, say what, they make you feel dizzy
Say what, say what, oh yeah
Say what, say what, oh yeah
I have good character, no drugs for me
Show good character, just like ME!

Fourth Grade – Blake Lewis, Alec Buob and Alex Loental
Drugs are for thugs, they ain’t cool
They don’t know how drugs can be so cruel
So stick to the rules and you’ll be so cool
Because being drug free is the way to be.

Fifth Grade – Sarah Noar
Drugs, Drugs, Drugs
I’ll tell you why drugs are bad
When people use them, they could go mad
We start with the basics if you please

Drugs, Drugs, Drugs
Smoking can blacken your lungs
Tobacco gives cancer to your tongues
Drinking can ruin your mind
Drugs make you look like Frankenstein

So stop right there
Don’t you dare
Drugs will ruin you
Here’s what you should do

Pass, pass, pass, pass it on
Clap, Clap, Clap
Now give yourself a pat on the back!
You can do it no doubt
“Peace Out!”

Sixth Grade --  Madison Castle, Chase Dietrich, Justin Gillham, Justin Meyer, Ryan Farris and Bret Wiegand
I won’t do drugs and I can not lie
When someone asks me I’ll deny
When I see drugs all over the place
It makes me want to keep my space
So don’t do drugs, it will ruin your life
But if you do, you’ll pay the price
If you play sports, it’ll ruin that too
So now the choice is up to you

Sixth Grade – Mason Ely, Zoe Hulet, Dusty Langdon, Michael Morgan and Courtney Roberts
Ya’ see someone walkin’ up to ya with a cigarette pack, cigarette pack
I’ll give ya this pack if you join my band, join my band
I said no, said no
You really gotta go before I call the cops, call the cops, on yo, on yo
So you walk down the street, down the street,
And you hear his feet, hear his feet
Whatever you do, you don’t listen to him, listen to him
When you get home, get home, tell your mom or dad, mom or dad
So you see, so you see
You should listen to me, to me
Just walk away, walk away
