On Wednesday, October 10, 2012, the Bellevue School District will participate in National Unity Day. Students, parents, school staff and community members are encouraged to wear orange as part of the "Make it Orange, Make it End" bullying prevention campaign.
Last year on Unity Day, students across Bellevue participated by wearing their favorite orange shirts, sweaters and scarves. At Highland Middle School, 248 students signed “The End of Bullying Begins with Me” petition. The school sent the signed petition to the National Bullying Prevention Center. Highland students’ names will be added to an online petition signed by students from across the country.
