Saint Joseph High School and the SADD Club are excited to bring students a terrific opportunity presented by the Indianapolis Colts.  The Colts organization has put together a presentation about anti-bullying and are sending their mascot Blue to give a presentation! 

Blue will talk about the importance of choosing love over judgment and bullying. With social media broadening, it has become easier to hide behind who we really are. This show is a reminder to be yourself and connect with those around you in a real way.

Date of show: Monday, October 9, 2017
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Length of show: approximately 35 minutes
