Students and staff across Sagamore Middle School recently celebrated Unity Day in a collective effort to eliminate bullying in their school community and beyond. 

Unity Day is a worldwide initiative with the goal of preventing bullying through active social change and ensure that all youth are safe and supported in their schools, communities and online. Each day, Sagamore Middle School staff and students wore similar hats, shirts and colors to raise awareness of the issues associated with bullying.
