This week we recognize "School Violence Awareness Week". In doing so, I encourage all staff and students to remember the importance of speaking up to help us all ensure a safe school. It's simple to do. If you see something, say something. If you hear something, say something. Tell a teacher. Tell an administrator. Tell any trusted adult. Let's work together to make our school a great place where everyone can feel safe each and every day!
