On August 21, 2012 Chaminade was orange. This is not an uncommon sight with the multitude of spirit days and senior clothing Fridays, but this one day was vastly different. We wore orange in honor of family spirit, our theme for this year. Although we had only been in school a couple of days, a number of concerning scenarios took place. Whether it be because of bullying or teen drinking, our school has demonstrated how it comes together in times of crisis, and promoted school unity during the Diversity Team sponsored event. Not only did students wear school colors, but Twitter was filled with positive messages spread by various members of our student body using the hash-tags, #standup and #familyspirit.
