Spotlight: JCA Goes Orange for Anti-Bullying

Johnston Charter Academy (JCA) went orange in support of Unity Day, which serves as the signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month. This day represents a message of hope and support. Kerry Chisnall, principal at JCA, even had shirts made for the staff that said, “Be Kind JCA.”

“We stand behind the culture that our school practices and fully support the environment in which our students are learning in,” said Kara Dawson, admissions representative at JCA.
