Red Ribbon Week

During Red Ribbon Week, Cambridge PTSA showcases a wrecked car in the school's back parking lot to help remind students of the dangers of texting & driving. Parents have a vital role in preventing their teens from making this potentially devastating mistake, most importantly by being a role model.
