Students for safety logo(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- LRHS club Students for Safety (SFS) Club is hosting “Say Something” week, March 2-6.

“Say Something Week” is sponsored by Students Against Violence Everywhere (S.A.V.E), an organization linked to the Sandy Hook Promise. The purpose of the week is to bring awareness to students and staff about the warning signs of a potential school shooting.

On Monday, March 2, the SFS Instagram @lrhsstudentsforsafety, will post a link to a video that goes into detail about the warning signs one can identify, what to do, and how to act accordingly.

On Tuesday, March 3, there is a potential service hour opportunity. Students will meet in room 570 to make posters with messages against violence and hang them around the school.

On Wednesday, March 4, there will be a pledge against violence available at all lunches. Students are encouraged to sign this pledge against violence.

There will be a sidewalk chalk activity on Thursday, March 5, where students can write messages of positivity for service hours.

There will be a meeting at 7 a.m. Friday in room 570, when the club will reflect on the week and how it went. Updates on this upcoming event will be posted on the clubs Instagram.

Co-president junior Ella Botko is excited to kick off “Say Something Week.”

“We have put a lot of work into putting this week together and are very excited to see all our hard work unfold. We hope that a lot of people will participate, because safety is an important matter and it never hurts to be more educated,” said Botko.
