Passaic Valley is Proud to Take Part in #SaySomething Week

Passaic Valley Regional High School in partnership with Sandy Hook Promise, a national nonprofit organization led by several family members whose loved ones were killed in the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, took part in the National Say Something Week, February 25 through March 1.

The week-long series of events at PV included an information table and prize wheel during lunch periods where students answered questions and won prizes, and a student designed backdrop "selfie station" where students took the pledge to be upstanders in taking action to create a safe, healthy school environment. On Wednesday, students wore green & white to raise awareness of the Say Something mission. Throughout the week, PVTV promoted awareness through Good Morning Hornet announcements and posters designed by art students were hung throughout the school.

Say Something Week raises awareness and reinforces the power young people have to prevent tragedies, when they "say something" to a trusted adult to protect a friend from hurting themselves or others.
