At Sullivan Middle School, student council is hosting a Spirit Week to show support for suicide prevention.

Each student will receive a card with a yellow ribbon.

This card is meant to be a simple way for students who are hurting to reach out for help.

Additionally, in the middle school art class, students will receive a short presentation about suicide warning signs and ways to get help before beginning a project in which they will create Suicide Prevention posters.  These posters will be placed around the school.
