On Thursday, Nov. 15, McMurray Elementary staff and students will be going blue to honor Grief Awareness Day in our schools.
Join the school in wearing blue as they come together to show our support for children who have experienced the death of a loved one.
Children's Grief Awareness Day is also observed nationally. It's designed to help all become more aware of the needs of grieving children and of the benefits that they obtain through the support of others.
Observed on the third Thursday of every November (one week before the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving), Children's Grief Awareness Day is intentionally set in the holiday season, often a particularly difficult time for those grieving the loss of a loved one.
