February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.

Teen Dating Violence (TDV) is more common than many people think.  According to the Center for Disease Control, one in three teens in the U.S. will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse by someone they are in a relationship with before they become adults; and nearly half (43%) of college women report experiencing violent and abusive dating behaviors. By joining together, we can spread awareness and stop dating abuse before it starts!

School Resource Officer John Savona and the UF Office of Victim Services will be teaming up to provide information and events to the Blue Wave community.  More information and events will be announced throughout the month.  Wear orange to create awareness and support TDV Survivors!

Attention Thespians!

Our monthly meeting will be held Thursday during High School lunch in the theatre room. Information about induction into the National organizational will be discussed.
