Each year, Needham High School staff and students have a day during which they can truly express themselves: Make a Statement Day.
On that day, students and faculty wear white t-shirts decorated with inspirational, funny or artistic quotes--often a phrase that means something to them. The school provides blank shirts and decoration supplies.
This year, Make a Statement Day is March 8, with decorating days on March 6 in room 728, and March 7 in the cafeteria--complete with music and pizza. For a taste of what students can expect, check out last year's video (to the right).
For kids lacking inspiration, Needham Youth Services has a few suggestions on their site. Topics range from general advice and quotes to social issues to technology.
As last year, Make a Statement Day 2013 was generously sponsored by Mark's Moving Company and Lisa's Boutique. Last year, they provided 1,000 t-shirts for students.
