students didn't disappoint when it was their time to take a STAND.
The newly formed organization, comprised of teachers, staff and students who Support Tolerance, Acceptance, uNderstanding and Diversity, organized a week of events and activites to stem bullying and spread kindness, said Bolich teacher and STAND adviser, Jessica Moore.
