Mirah Abulaban, a 5th grader in Ms. Hopson’s class , and her brother Zaid, a kindergartener in Ms. Mathews’s class, had no idea that their door decoration would be such a big winner when they entered the Informed Families “It’s Up To Me To Be Drug Free” contest. By entering the contest and decorating their door together, families were able to carry the message to their communities. The Red Ribbon Week contest, which is in it’s 26th year, is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention campaign. Sealey participates each year in drug week activities, but this was a first for entering the contest. The Abulaban family competed with other families throughout the state. Judging was done by voting online. Sealey families, community friends and friends and families all over the United States came together to support the family. The end result was an iPAD 2 for the Abulabans and $1,000 dollars for Sealey. Principal Demetria Clemons and the Abulaban family were in the Spotlight at the school board meeting on January 24, 2012. She announced that the school has decided to purchase a seal mascot to travel with students when they attend competitions and to cheer students on at Sealey. The question is whether to get a gray or brown seal!
