Today the most inspiring and memorable event will be held where a variety of students come together to tear down our assumptions of stereotypes of others.

More than 300 students will attend and will get the opportunity to to really get to know new people and people whom they thought they knew. This event will be held in the East Gym with a series of fun games, ice breakers, competitions, events and activities that are indescribable!

All the students that are invited may take their belonging with them and its recommended to wear comfortable clothing. This event is worth attending in order to meet new people, become closer to your friends, get free candy, snacks, soda, a bracelet with their name, and free pizza.

Participating students will realize that words matter, both positive and negative comments, and they will also get the opportunity to cross the line and realize that many others have the same struggles and likes. May all those who attend the event get inspired and begin the challenge of making a difference one person at a time...
