By wearing a particular color one Friday each month, students and staff will be participating in the Colored in Character Initiative. They are taking a stand to recognize the importance of showing good character at all times. On Friday, January 10, all students and staff should wear purple for self control, celebrating our ability to manage our emotions and make good choices when frustrated.
