HERE IS TO A SUCCESSFUL DV AWARENESS WEEK AT BFMS!

Stalking (perpetrator)

October Feature: The FRC TEAM would like to thank the students of BFMS for their fundraising efforts as part of their awareness week at their school. They wore a purple shirt on purple shirt day, collected pennies in a penny war to donate to FRC and had a "poster hanging" around campus that depicted the Red Flags of Dating Violence. The teachers wore purple ribbons and it was all made possible by our current Intern Stephanie Sparozich working collaboratively with the Principal, Ms. Muse. Thank you one and all!
