Thomasville - It's Red Ribbon week, and Thursday at Garrison-Pilcher Elementary school in Thomasville, students and teachers took part in a parade to "Just say No." Students decorated their bikes and tricycle-cycles, and joined the Green team, with cartoon character Shrek, which they can only do if promise to stay drug-free.

Kindergarten Teacher, Jessica Barfield says, "We know that education is the key to keeping kids off of drugs and so we try to start early in letting them know that everyone of them is special and that we love everyone of them and that they need to take care of themselves and not do drugs or drink alcohol."

Red Ribbon week is held in the fall as a way to kick off to a year of drug prevention.
