We kicked of the pledge to make all of CMS bully free at the beginning of the school year at Northwest School of the Arts and brought Capitol Records artist Midnight Red to speak to the school about care, compassion and love for each other. Watch as they bring a NWSA Senior student on stage who has shown exemplary moments of care for her classmates.
