In support of National Unity Day and National Bullying Prevention Month, the Braves TV crew painted rocks and wrote kind messages on them. They hid the rocks throughout the school on October 25. Students that find a rock can give it to someone to brighten their day, keep it, or hide it for someone else to find. Or they can return it to the LMC for a candy prize. At WHS, we believe KINDNESS ROCKS! Submitted by Christy English.
