 Henderson Middle School had a great culmination to our week long anti-bullying campaign (October 22nd -October 26th).  Students wore different color t-shirts  to represent a different aspect of our anti-bullying campaign.  Students participated in a door decorating contest, created anti-bullying posters, and some of our students met with news anchor, Sophia Choi, from WSB-TV Channel 2 News.  It was a great week of activities and the excitement level was high.  
Ms. Patillo sends a special "thank you" to Ms. Jennifer Morris, Ms. Eliscia Brooks, Mr. Robert Mason, the HMS Student Council, the WHMS News Crew, and the Henderson MS PTSA.  They all did a wonderful job in making this week a big success.
