Blue Ribbon activities for schools

Promotion could be as simple as asking your students or staff to wear blue ribbons during the month of April, create a Blue Ribbon Tree whether inside or out, share information about our Nurturing Parenting programs with your PTA or parents, schedule a Kids on the Block performance (elementary),   share our Positive Parenting tips calendar with your  families, or have your 4th through 8th graders participate in our annual Children’s Art Contest.  The winning art entry will have their submission recreated as a poster and placed inside all TANK and Metro buses.
