Children's Grief Awareness Day

Thursday, November 15, was Children’s Grief Awareness Day.  Students who have experienced the loss of a loved one were invited to write that person’s name on a blue butterfly, the symbol used by the Caring Place in Cranberry Township, to raise awareness of the impact that grief and loss have on our student body. Additionally, everyone was encouraged to wear blue on November 15 to show support for all who have grieved the loss of a loved one. The mission of Children’s Grief Awareness Day is to raise awareness of the impact of death on children and of their need for support. Below Caitlin DeVries and Julia Scanlon distribute butterflies to students for the day.
