October 2nd WFMS Family Message
Good afternoon WFMS families,
October is Bully Prevention Month
During the month of October, our counselors will be presenting classroom guidance lessons on bully prevention. On October 3rd WFMS will recognize World Day of Bullying Prevention. Please wear a blue shirt to advocate ending bullying. We would like to see as many of our staff and students as possible participate and show their support to end bullying.
October 19 is Unity Day. Please wear something orange to advocate ending bullying and bringing unity to Wake Forest Middle School and our community. Join us as we collectively take a stand against bullying at WFMS.
