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!

Pictured below our Mrs. Outlaw's students showing their support!
