Children’s Grief Awareness Day is November 16, 2017. It is a day designed to bring awareness to the needs of grieving children and provide support for them. This is an event that takes place every year on the third Thursday in November. This is a particularly important time to provide support for the grieving children because the holiday season can be an especially hard time after experiencing the death of a loved one.

On Monday, students were given blue post-it notes. Students were to write a message of hope, or write the name of a loved one they have lost. They were also given the option to simply decorate a butterfly. These post-it notes were used to write ‘hope’ in the hallway near the school’s office.

“We are participating in Children’s Grief Awareness Day to support grieving children who have lost someone close to them,” said J-M’s Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Herold. All students and faculty are encouraged to wear blue on Thursday, November 16, Children’s Grief Awareness Day.
