Unity Day Cudas Unite!
October 25, 2017 - Unity Day at NSBHS was a day to acknowledge and support all the important causes that take place in the month of October:
Anti-Bullying, Breast Cancer Awareness, Disability Awareness, Autism Awareness, Down's Syndrome Awareness and Mix it Up at Lunch.
Students, faculty and staff had the opportunity to write a message of kindness and inspiration on a strip of colored paper of their choice. Each color represented a different cause. The strips of paper were then linked together to form a chain. A symbol of our unity, respect and support for all of these worthy causes. NSBHS students also wore red on this day to show their support!
